Critique my hunter?

This is my 6 year old hanoverian, he's 15.2 1/2 permanent carded as a small hunter. He's by Cheenook and out of a trakehner, whose breeding I can't recall off the top of my head. He's a amateur horse for sure, originally a resale horse, but so fantastic we decided to keep him. Currently he does hunter in a snaffle and jumpers in a happy mouth snaffle with a figure 8 nose band. Though, we're thinking of switching him to a happy mouth for hunters as well.

I'd rather not be judged as rider (because I'm well aware that my form is terrible), but here he is.

The head drop at the end of both videos was me trying to get my composure back. I had the stomach flu and I was really not trying to lose it during the end of my round. The looking down for the lead change is all me, nasty habit I'm trying to drop.

Thank you, but there certainly is a reason why I'm a hunter and not an eq rider

WOOOOWWWW love love your horse and your a lovely rider. I don't know what you would need to work on with him that's where your coach comes in handy and what your competition looks like but from what I see ( from him ) he is great. Nice stride, you make it look super easy. You know what you need to work on but that aside great great horse. He has a nice mix of the older style of hunters with the modern ones which is nice. Most hunters now are one or the other and watching him I very enjoyable.

He has a big jump and something about him just makes me want to watch more. And I watch a lot of hunter and that doesn't happen very often

Thank you, this is seriously my once in a lifetime horse. He's just so ridable and an absolutely blast to ride. Just today I was riding him bareback in the field and he was an angel.

Here is the video we bought him off of and I've attached a couple pictures of him.

And here's a video of him doing jumpers. Though, this is from last year.

I am in love with your horse. He's a beautiful hunter and an amazing jumper. You have a very special horse .... But I think you knew that already

Anymore, more critical critiques? I'm typically good at seeing things, especially with hunters, but I can't seem to look at this one without the rose colored glasses.
