Critique us please?

Right now I'm on a every other week lesson schedule. I'm only doing flat lessons as I want to make sure we're really working correctly before we take jumping lessons. My trainer, who is an eventer herself says that she would love to get me going too.
I think that's the coolest thing ever!
My mare definitely enjoys herself with jumping, at least I think so. I've never had a problem with her refusing really.

Mostly looking for a critique on her, but one on me as well would be cool too. I'm not so sure if this video is the best, but.. here goes.

I've been riding for 12 years with one singular instructor. I started western, moved to English, then began leasing my mare (I now own her)

This progression over 4 years of working with her. I guess I must sound a little crazy! Haha

My instructor is a new instrucor, as my old one says she has nothing left to teach me and wants to see me progress. Sorry about that!

We started very small. This our first time going back to this height. I had tried once before but neither of us were ready.
I went back and worked between 1'6 and 2'8 for two years, lots of practice before we went for this one.

I guess I misunderstood your first post. I will leave the critiques to those who jump.

You set your horse up for the perfect distance. No ground line can make that tough sometimes, and can encourage horses to pull rails. But you ride up to that vertical like a pro.
Only thing I think I would pick at, would be that you toe out. Toeing out is a pain to fix.

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

It seems like she has a hard time with a ground pole before a jump. Like 9 out of 10 timeswe end up with a long spot..

If I toe out am I pinching with my knees?
