She looks like she is traveling at a nice level speed. I don't know much about jumping, but I don't think you would want a tiny western pleasure canter to get you over a jump :P

Looks like a pretty nice canter to me.

Sure, you could collect/slow her up a tad more, but doesn't need to be much.

Now if your friends are riding 16.2 hh horse, yeah, your 15.1 horse will feel "fast" because they are smaller.

I know it looks nice, but even the previous owner and others that have ridden her say she needs more work on her canter as in balance. We are thinking she's probably not balanced. It's one thing to see a video and another to be on her. She just hasn't been ridden in a while.

it could be better.. but it's not horrible. Try doing lots and lots of well prepared transitions.
