Critique me and Archie jumping

Please Critque me and my pony jumping. The last jump is 95cm. So please tell me what you think. Oh by the way Archie is a 14HH Arab/welsh and he is 10 but only been jumping for 6 months. I taught him how to jump.

Look at those knees! They're up by his eyeballs! Great position, both of you. Foot's a bit too much home in the stirrup, but other than that, I got nothin'!

I really like the position of your lower leg :) Also, he's a lovely jumper! Great job training him yourself. I did that with my old pony and it was a lot of fun :)

Yes thank you Oxer, yes my insturcter think that we will be able to get him up to doing 105cm rounds. The only issue with his jumping it Dazzle boards. Any suggestions? So night he will go straight over them like an angle other nights he will carry on a be like a little 2 year old just seeing somthing for the first time.

I will post a picture below what he does.

This one is that bad I will post the worst one when I can find it tomorrow. I got him over it this one (and it is the horseland jump.) but it just get's annoying.

Your foot is to far in the stirrup, but 3 words for ya BUM IN SADDLE. To do this tuck up nice and tight in the abdomen area, this will bring your leg forward also. Otherwise great!

What a great looking jumper! You have done a great job with him.
