    You are jumping for the horse, rather then letting him come to you and close your hip angle. You are standing in the stirrups, pinching with your knee and are way over the poommel. I do like that you are looking up.

    You need to sink your weight into your heels and wait for your horse to jump, not jump up his neck. It might be beneficial to try jumping with no stirrups, orat least flatting so you don't rely on the stirrups so much. They are there to help position your leg/feet and to let you sink your weight into your heels, not for something to stand on

    You look pretty good but I have a few things to mention:
    Keep your heels down
    You seem to be jumping ahead of the horse
    Move back a little. Your two point is way to far foward. Make sure you are like above the saddle not on his neck.
    Move your hands back just a tad

    Basicly you did very good but you need to move everything back a little

    Good job at looking forward

    Looking at this again, I would like to add you could use a bit more release, especially if the horse is green

    He doesn't look to pleased.

    1dog3cats17rodents- Thank you, for pointing out the things in your first post. But about my release- he is not green. Anymore. This was to show his owner what he can do now. I was also training him for jumper, becase I think I have stated before, I was a jumper for six years, and just as a few weeks ago, I am trying hunter. This was last year, so hunter critique here isn't needed =]

    NimblesGirl- move everything back? Even my legs? And my heels are down, you can see that. And I couldn't force them down anymore, showing that I am not leaning on his neck, just over it. Thank you about my looking though =]

    MIEventer- We were going at an almost-gallop to get the next five strides... Normally a seven stride. Racehorses never looked pleased... right? Because having their ears forward would be like sails in the way of going fast. So of course he doesn't look pleased... Because his is galloping forward. But he loves to jump, he always prances forward when we got to the jumping arena, and sometimes he would be naughty and toss his head when we came into gymnastics.

    My Eventer is an OTTB and his ears are never back.

    Solid form is solid form - whether you are doing Jumpers, Hunters or Eventing. A proper release is a proper release, again - whether you are doing Jumpers, Hunters or Eventing.

    How is the release you are doing, irrelivant to Hunters or Jumpers?

    My OOTB has his ears forward, as do the others at the barn. And regardless of whether he's green or not, you still need more release. You asked for a critique, don't be shocked when we critique you

    To OP you do have your heels down and doesn't seem like your leg slipped back too far. I do think you need more release and that you are jumping way ahead of your horse which combined with not enough release is making for not a super happy horse. I do think if you don't get so far ahead of your horse you could have a really nice position.
