Desensitizing Horses to Sights and Sounds

I spent today with some of our Mounted Search & Rescue friends in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. We need to expose our horses to the chaos of places like this every so often to keep them used to such things. The YouTube link below is to a 2 minute video of our day, and there are many photos contained within the video. I processed every one of the photos through Lightroom:

Thanks Camellia.  For this, I used my iPhone8+ mounted in a DJI Osmo mobile gimbal.  If you aren't familiar with a gimbal, it's a device that moves the camera opposite and equal to movement by the person holding it.  So, a trot is a very bouncy gate on a horse, but my Osmo offsets the bounce and makes the video very smooth.  They make them for DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras, but they're very expensive due to the weight of those cameras.  For iPhones, it's not all that pricey.
