I just bought a camcorder today at the Source and the salesperson tried to sell me a tripod that the legs would wrap around fence posts (or something else) so I could take pictures/video of myself with the horses. I didn't buy it but it looked kinda neat...maybe what you're looking for? It is called CASE LOGIC PVT-14 FLEXIBLE TRIPOD item number 1618699
Here's a link to the website. I think that there are a couple of different sizes.
