Critique wanted Please (JUMPING)

Hi just a little info about Archie, Archie is a 14HH 10yo Arab X Welsh with 4 regos's and his grandsire is Courtland Boy Blue. Any way when I got him 4 months ago he had know idea even how to walk over a pole on the ground. And now we have jumped a 80cm course and a training course at 95cm!! Any way this is a little about me I have been riding for 5 years and My first pony was a cute little Welsh Mountian Pony Lacey, and my second was a chestnut Riding Pony X Welsh B mare who buck and reared all the time but I thank her for it as I now have the coruge to ride though any naughty behaviour now, and my third pony comes to Archie. Any way if you could critique me and Archie thank you.

1st Photo is Archie's 2nd ever showjumping comp - 65cm
2nd Photo is (againd Archie 2 ever showjumping comp - 75cm
3rd Photo is (againd Archie 2 ever showjumping comp - 80cm
4th Photo is training at home, just having fun.

ah! Your pony is to die for! Looks to me like he uses his neck/body/legs very nicely over a fence. And you look like a great little rider with a solid leg! I would only say to give your pony just a weeeeee bit more release. You guys look very brave! His ears are pricked forward... as he seems to enjoy his job.

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

I have to say other than looking a little stiff in your leg and arms, you and your horse both look great. What a great natural little jumper he is!!!! I am very impressed. :)

Another thing I picked up, watch your feet. They are too far into your stirrups. A little more heel depth will help control this.
