Critique My Horse's Jump

Hello y'all! :)
This is my horse Pumpkin a few years ago. This was before I owned him, so he's a bit on the thin/uhealthy side. Pleas only critique the horse, and not the rider, as that is not myself. Thanks!

Your horse definitely has nice movement and pace. The jump isn't to bad. From what you could see cause most of what I saw was the jump from behind but front legs were perfectly square and for the most part the hind was squared when going long over

Thank you! These are "little" jumps to him, so absolutely no effort is executed lol

He seems like he is going a bit too fast for a Hunter class with jumps that small.
Cute horse

Actually it's because he has such a large stride, that in order to not chip in or out, he needs to be pushed. He is actually incredibly lazy, but he loves to jump. That's also just how were trained, we call them "horse show strides" which are longer and faster than training strides. It works for us lol. That's how everyone I show against ride jumps

For those of you saying he is too fast, this is him the same day on the flat. Again, it's not me riding so no critique on the rider. Also keep in mind that this is his "hyper" time. He's as lazy as the day is long, and on top of it, this was when he was still "sick-ish".

This statement makes no sense to me... How in the world does a big stride need a push to get a distance? There were some rushed lines and corners but overall I didn't think it was too fast. I've heard George Morris lecture on the need for hunters to be "bright" and forward, not half dead like you see so many warmbloods these days. If you look up a couple videos from pony finals, you can see the courses really are more forward.

It's hard to critique his jump since he's just stepping over them. Fairly square with his knees but he's really not trying at all. My main concern with be teaching this previous rider how to execute a lead change, he's definitely not going to get them the way she's asking.

Do you have any videos in the year you've owned him? I don't feel right that his old owner is being put on the line and not yourself.
