It drives me crazy that I don't come on here anymore! Lots of things have changed and I can't have the tab on this computer like my own! So anyways, lots of things have changed lately. I don't know if any of you even remember me or Minor! But he's really been slowing down lately, which is good because he used to be super quick and very headstrong. He has a little haflinger in him as well we found out! I don't really think I have any excuses for anything. I am half seating with him now because it keeps him calmer, but there are parts where i'm not because I was riding a practice eq course. So here is the video and some screen shots!
Cute@! I am not going to offer critiques anymore to you. I do not jump, so I can only offer quite general riding suggestions/advice. You need folks that know about jumping, you have progressed THAT FAR!
I salute you!

So in the first video I see a loose rein and a pony that is counter bending from time to time. I would get a feel on the pony's mouth and get him to bend around your leg. The first outside line he breaks to a trot which tells me that you need to keep your leg on, and keep a feel on him so that he doesn't feel like he's been dropped. I can appreciate that he has a nice even canter, but I personally would ride him up a little to get a more appropriate distance... As I noticed that you tend to chip in quite a bit. All in all I see a nice, polite horse and an equally lovely little rider. The pony in your first video looks like a great confidence builder too, which I love!
