Unless I am doing something wrong, I think the video is still private.

It brings me to your facebook page. Can you upload the video to youtube?
    12-01-2012, 07:37 PM
This is the only good video to critique on you tube, you should check out the older jumping videos and compare !

You are looking great! :)
There are just two things I have - one, I would give a bigger release.
Secondly, it looks like your heels ... I'm not exactly sure how to explain this ... but they flop. The turn out, then come in, then out, then in, in sync with your horse's stride. Almost like you just leave them very, very relaxed and loose. So they just flop on the horse. That sounds like a mean word, but I honestly can't think of how else to explain it! I'm sorry, I don't mean it like that :) I would just make sure you are really sinking those heels down, and keeping your toes forward.
When you are kicking, make sure you are using your leg, and not your heel. That could possibly be what it is. You will get a better effect, and it will look nicer, if you make sure you are kicking from your leg, not your feet.
Other than that, you look amazing!! Good job :)

Ahahaha that made me laugh, yes today I noticed that my heel turns out and in with the horses stride, so I focused a bit on keeping my toes straight (not turned outwards) and heels down. Im also focussing on making my horse more sensitive to leg pressure so I don't kick with me heels. I will upload some more photos and video links soon.

Green Broke
I just flipped through your pictures. The biggest thing I see is your eyes are glued to your horses ears. I don't think I really saw any picture where your eyes were up. I also noticed "broken wrists" however I also noticed that you commented that you know you do that.

You have a lovely horse and seem to be doing really well. I would like to see a more direct line from your elbow to the bit and get your hands up some more. Also heels. Your heels are up in a lot of your pictures. You need to get them down some more.

A quick glance at the video and you have a very busy seat coming into a fence. Its almost like you are pumping. If you could just soften your seat a bit and unlock your hips and keep a more quiet hand it would be beautiful.

Otherwise things look great. I was going to comment that your position over fences is rather hunched but it seems those were older pictures. In your recent videos and pictures you seem to have a lovely over fences position. You have a nice solid quiet leg. Once your seat softens up a bit coming into a jump it will look great.

I love your horse. He is just lovely.

Thank you for that critique all I can say is that I will keep on trying to improve broken wrists, the line of heel, hip, elbow and raise my wrists while keeping them not broken, Looking up ahead of me and not staring to see if my horses head is down, I am currently working on having quite hands and will keep persisting, and having a relaxed jumping position without all the tension. Its really nice to evaluate how I ride, and sometimes I don't realise what I am doing wrong until some one tells me thank you every one :)
