Critique my Jumping and Dressage!

Hey, at first: I'm sorry for mistakes in the text, I'm from Germany and my grammar is really bad

I want you to criticise my jumping an dressage, at first I will give you informations about my horse:

Born: 1989 in Germany
Breed: Holsteiner
Sire: Corleone
Dam: Zolara
He loves jumping and although he's 20 Years old, I can jump with him at jousts (is that right?)
be that as it may...
Here I have some pictures for you:

I'm sorry for this bad quality, but it's an extract from a video

you look great. The only thing I notice in your dressage pictures is that you're looking down :)
As my instructor used to say "don't look at your horse! he isn't going to change colors!"

Dressage pics look good. Hands a little uneven in the trotting pic, but I think your position looks great and your horse moves beautifully.

Your leg has slipped back a little in the jumping pics. Particularly in the 3rd picture, your stirrups look long. Maybe try to shorten a hole or two to tighten things up a bit.

Love your horse!

I agree with the others. It looks like you might be jumping ahead a little also.
Dein Pferd ist sehr hübsch! :)

On the last picture (dressage) the horse is crooked. There is uneveness in the horse's position from haunce to poll and the head is twisted to the inside. Looks like thd horse is not being supported enough by the outside rein/inside leg and the inside rein is overpowering the outside one.

If you compare your position to the folowing you can see the difference.
