I don't love the pony in the first video. I would school that pony on the flat for a few more months before I had people jumping around on it. While it looks to be cute and sporty enough, there's no steering and is much less polite than I can appreciate.
That being said... I like how you rode the swedish. I had a nasty crash through a big swedish oxer a few years back, and can't seem to let it go... so I have an unusual amount of admiration for folks that can ride up to the base of a big swedish like no big deal. Haha! I'd only really say that maybe your release is a bit more exaggerated than is necessary. Although, I'm of the belief that i'd rather have a rider give too much than a rider that snags the horse in the mouth. Nice job. :)
Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.
