Critique Over Fences Please :)

I just recently purchased this horse (2 1/2 weeks ago) and I feel uber comfortable riding him. Critique me in this video please :)

From what I see we need to work on getting straight to the fence, not wobble all over the place.
I need to get my leg closer to the girth and not let my toes stick out! (tips?)
I also have chicken wings when I'm jumping [Thumbs up, thumbs up! Grr!]

I really like your little horse. It's always nice to see someone buy a horse that seems right for them. I think you look a little stiff, as though you fight to maintain your position, which falls apart a little bit on your approach. (Note some slight body pumping, drop of your left hand to ineffectively correct a drift). In my opinion, good things to work on would include keeping your horse centered between your aides in a lateral sense, ie inside leg to outside hand. Otherwise it seems like you have a good trainer, and learning to ride a new horse well takes time. Congrats!

You're horse seems to be listening to your leg/rein, but he's not connected or underneath you and this really stands out in your turns when his shoulders turn but his haunches spin out. You obviously feel the wobbles when you're heading toward the jump, and you seem to have this problem too when you land. You completely lose contact with the bit when you landing and it seems you let some reins slip through your fingers with your release or they were too long to begin with, which is one reason your horse is just plowing into the center. (This is when an automatic release would be helpful.) Ask your trainer to help you with this one. I ride on outside aids so anything I say probably wouldn't be helpful anyway.

You look nice. Its kind of hard to see with the angle the video is taken, but I can see your elbows are sticking out, kind of like you are doing the chicken dance. And you need to keep your thumbs up and your legs are a little wobbly.

I agree with you guys, I'll post the most recent video from a lesson. My trainer pointed out the same things. ;P
