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

Well, I used to jump a few years ago, but quit for a few reasons.. So, I'm probably not the best to critique it!
Although now I do dressage.

I'd say the only thing (with your dressage) is that your leg is a little too forward (they call it a chair seat) and your hands are a bit too low, and it looks like you're holding the reins wrong, at least the way I was taught. Your knuckles are pointed down, and your thumb folded in.
Although in pictures it's kinda hard to tell exactly. :)

As far as your show jumping goes, the horse is not very "well-rounded" over the jump, it seems to be a direct result of him "taking off" too late. In the first picture, he could have had a straighter approach over the jump, but it is not bad. I'm just heavily critiquing because I'm very involved in showing. How high are the jumps? Your two point is pretty decent but could use some fine-tuning. I believe that your shoulders should be just a wee bit further back.

I also think that your shoulders could go back a bit, and also down a teensy bit.
Your horse looks like he gets pretty deep into the approach to the jumps, it that correct?
