I'll have an opportunity soon to be out recording some horses in a large park in L.A.
I'm hoping traffic won't be too bad and if it isn't, has anyone recorded horses before?
I was thinking about strapping a Zoom to the under-strap of the horse saddle. Bad idea? Anyone tried anything similar to an onboard mic on a horse? I'm mostly looking for some hooves sounds and running, ups, bys, in and stops, ride aways, etc.
I thought I might try to get some isolated effects. Some of the time I'll have to make the mics inconspicuous to a camera. Any ideas?
Your experience is definitely appreciated!
