This is not my area of expertise and I am looking for advice on how to achieve an outcome that will require an iPhone on a tripod that auto tracks (pan only) a horse and rider from the centre of a 20 x 60 meter flat horse arena for approximately 1 hour. ie a real time video horse riding lesson necessitated by Corvid 19 restrictions.
This does not have to be high end gear (I do have a conservative budget) but I envisage the full solution working like this.
#1. At the horse end we would have rider with an iPhone mounted to the helmet viewing riders hands and horses head. EarPods in rider's ears communicating live with instructor over cellular connection.
#2. Previously mentioned iPhone mounted on a tripod that autopans continuously following the horse and rider. Instructor can monitor both iPhone video streams and give audio only feedback. There would be basically no other significant movement in the area so software that tracks movement might work? Conversely the rider could carry some kind of beacon for the servo driven head to track?
Clearly I have no idea how but that's why I am asking here. If there are more appropriate forums to post this to please let me know.
