    I'm definitely following the line to the next jump I wish I had video on the computer, I've never encountered anything quite so bendy so I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with 'eyes forward'.

    Sorry, misunderstood. I LIKE how your eyes are forward and you are following the lines to the next jump. =D

    Hopefully I can lure some of you guys back here, because I found the video my coach took.

    You were really quite accurate to just about every fence. That is tough when you're galloping around. I love the noise of your horse's hooves when he gallops by the camera! Haha!!
    Only thing I might add to my critique would be that you need to work on getting him to supple and bend around your leg. He's counter bending all over the place and if you were coming to a fence quickly out of a corner, or a roll back and he was all counter bent and didn't have his eye on the fence, you might get yourself into trouble.
    But either way... I like the videos. It shows me a great rider, and a horse that likes to jump! :)

    He does love to jump, the problem is his flat work
    He's pretty crafty with his feet, but as we've started schooling into the three footers his corners and grumpiness with bending is getting us into tight spots with knocked rails, so that makes sense. We've started to do more suppling work in our lessons and I'm looking for different ones to do at home (any suggestions guys?) he's finally clued in to what moving off of and bending around the leg means, we just have to get it translating into the jumper ring.

    I really, really like how stable and calm you are. You're not disturbing the horse and he has his freedom to jump. You seem to be pretty well balanced and in my opinion giving him all the release he needs in this height. Looking at the pictures and videos I would recomend some work with two-point to get the knees more closer to the saddle. No pinching just holding you there.
