    You two are a really nice pair!

    I would really like to see you diffuse this horse a bit over fences. He needs to relax and slow down. I see him a being a bit too unbalanced and not quite the haunch engagement I would like in my jumpers. These problems are what contributed in the falls on the video, IMO.

    I would work first on controlling your own aggressive approach to the jumps. MAKE yourself relax more. This will communicate to the horse diffusing his aggressiveness. Will yourself to calm your mind.

    I think you two have great potential and I look forward to seeing more of you in the near future.

    Both of the horses looklike very capable jumpers (esp dark one) and I love the high knee action of the bay, he is super cute! I Agree you look to have quite an agressive heavy seat, you need to relax and wait for the jumps to try and avoid miscomunication resulting in leaving out strides. Riding them into the base of the fence will make them sit back coming into the jumps and jump rounder (rather than leaving out a stride and taking a flying leap) and will also help you getting used to waiting.
