    I can only pause and really see the position on the last jump. It looks like your leg has fallen back and you are more standing and leaning forward then in two point. Let your arms forward more over the jumps ( it looks like you are holding them over the withers) and try to have yourself back over the saddle more for a better center of gravity. Your head is forward which is good and you seem to be in rhythm with him :) I like the pair you two make.
    I can't really make out your shoulders so just saying to say, remember shoulders back. Hope this helps. Maybe get some close photos if you can

    Yep I just watched that again and noticed all the points you made. I'll make sure I practice that in my lesson.
    And thanks, he's a sweetheart :)

    Eccodecco pretty much said everything I was going to say... Keep your heels down. You're standing up in the stirrups, rather than pushing your crotch back and coming down into two point. You should try working in two point over poles. Sink the weight down into your heels and keep your crotch over or behind the pommel of the saddle. This will help you strengthen your lower body so when you go to jump you will be more stable. I definitely wouldn't bump up the height of the jumps until you can establish a good base. You could also slide your hands a few inches up the horse's neck in a short release. I absolutely love that horse though, and great job jumping in stride

    Is it just me or is that pony's stride really really short?

    And everyone else hit everything I saw. (:
    You look pretty good, I've been riding & starting ponies of years.. I still haven't jumped courses. O:

    Yeah thanks everyone! I've always had a problem with two point, but we've been focusing on sinking our weight down in the saddle lately so hopefully I've already developed that a bit. I'll try and upload some more recent jumps soon (:
    Oh and on that video I'd only had a few lessons on jumping, so I was pretty new to it (:

    Seemed like the horse needed better impulsion. Definitely seemed like an odd stride to have to ride...
