Walking Video and Conformation Photo Guidelines

In 2020 OBS provided Consignors the opportunity to submit walking videos and photos of horses to the master sortable index on the website.  We received a lot of positive feedback and will continue to offer this option in 2021. Following are standards and instructions on how the videos and photos should look and be supplied to OBS.  These standards and instructions are designed to help consignors make the videos and photos valuable marketing tools.
GRAPHICS INDEX LINK

  • Walking videos should be delivered to OBS as .mp4 file formats. THIS IS THE ONLY FILE FORMAT WE WILL ACCEPT.  They may be supplied via a flash drive or electronically through Drop Box or We Transfer.
  • NAMING OF FILES (VERY IMPORTANT): walking videos should be named with the hip number followed by the letter “w”. DO NOT PUT ANY OTHER INFORMATION (DAM, SIRE, ETC.) IN THE NAME OF THE FILE.  For example, if the video is of hip number 54, the file should be named, “54w.mp4”
  • FILE SIZE: walking videos should be 45-60 seconds in length.  File size should not exceed 20 mb
  • SHOT SEQUENCE: For walking videos, we recommend the following shot sequence
  1. Conformation shot
  2. Walking left to right
  3. Walking right to left
  4. Walking away
  5. Walking toward
  6. Conformation shot
  • GRAPHICS: PLEASE DO NOT ADD AUDIO TO YOUR VIDEOS.  OBS has created graphic packages for you to add to your video with the proper identifying information.  This will help create a more standardized look for all of the videos.  You may access these graphic templates GRAPHICS INDEX LINK
  • PERSONAL VIDEOS: We urge you to use a professional videographer to best present your horse, but  If you choose to create a walking videos yourself please follow these recommendations;
    • Be sure to hold your camera/smart phone in landscape (sideways) orientation.
    • Have your camera settings adjusted to 1920 x 1080 and 30 frames per second.
    • Please familiarize yourself with the Tips for shooting horse videos below
    • Please be sure to adhere to file size requirements listed above.
    • If you do not have the capability to add graphics to your video, you may use audio to properly identify each horse.

If you have any questions you may contact Jay Friedman in the OBS office. OBS reserves the right to not accept any videos we feel does not represent the horse well.

Tips for shooting horse videos

  • Photographer should keep the sun to their back and avoid harsh shadows on horses
  • Shooting on a slightly cloudy day is fine and usually prevents shadows. Do not shoot if it is raining.
  • The ideal shooting location should allow 40 or more feet for the horse to walk in a straight line. The area should be flat with a pleasing background that is free of distractions.
  • When shooting with a cell phone maintain a distance of about 20 feet from the horse. This will ensure the entire horse is included in the frame.
  • Walking on a hard surface shows the entire feet. If horse is walking on grass please make sure it is freshly cut. If walking on mulch or other material make sure it has been raked.
  • If your phone or camera records in a format other than the required .mp4 file type it will need to be converted. The easiest way is to upload your video to Youtube. When the video finishes processing just click the download button. The file will be sent back to you as an .mp4.
