Nathan Horrocks on mixing parkour with eventing and Many Clouds’ role in the development of the JockeyCam, as told to Kate Johnson
Riding is an extreme sport. It’s hard to describe what it physically feels like to ride. We set up Equine Productions, specialising in equine films, in 2012, using modern technology, different camera angles and editing styles to create content that puts the audience as close as possible to the horse.
Our Original Horsepower film was commissioned by the Jockey Club to promote the start of the Flat season. We used a “Russian Arm” car, with a camera attached to a crane, and filmed alongside, above and in front of the horse on a four-furlong gallop. So many people asked how we did it, the behind-the-scenes film was more popular than the original.
