Critique Jumper Round

Me and Leia from this weekend. My mom was filming, so she messed up a few times, hence the cut outs. Critique what you can please :)

Video is blocked in US, or so it says.
Try switching the music out.

Yes, I asked for the long spot here.. It was either that or an awkward chip xD

Overall, you look spectacular. The only thing I would work on is having more of a release over the jump!

For without a horse, i could not fly.

Sure looks good to me. Can I borrow your leg position and heels?

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Watch about 2 strides from some of the fences, you drop your hands (I actually thought you were bumping your horse's neck on purpose for a little while) and your horse typically chips when you do this.

As for the picture, looks pretty good... just remember that your release is supposed to be next to the neck using it as support, not floating above. Leaves you in a spot to catch your horse in the mouth.

It's been a while since I've seen a course from you... looks sooo much better.

If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question or asked the question wrong

And God took a handful of southerly wind, blew His breath over it and created the horse
