Critique me and my horse's jumping position

Hello, I was hoping some of you would be willing to critique my EQ and my horse's jumping form and suitability. He's a 5yr old arabian gelding. He's about 15hh. The jump is 2ft. Thanks for the help (:

You can't delete a thread once its been made. You can message a mod to move it to the correct area.

Well, as it is the riding critique section, I believe it's ok to put here.

As for your positioning, you have a nicely balanced seat and good give, the biggest thing that stands out to me is your toes that are basically pointed perpendicular to your horse!! Forward toes please!

He is a cutie and looks like he is having a blast!

Agreed about the toes. Your horse looks happy. I think he can jump higher/wider than this.
I REALLY like how you are resting NO WEIGHT AT ALL on him with your arms. It is SOOOO pleasant to see someone who understands that you need to Balance as the horse goes over a jump.
