Eventing Critique Please!

Hi, I would prefer only Eventers critique since of the difference of position for each discipline however, i am open to everyone's opinion!!! I compete at novice level and am working really hard on moving up to training level.

the video is about 2 months old, we are working on getting more forward to jumps.

I appreciate ALL critique, its good to hear from a new person :)

Looks like ur getting left behind the motion a tad bit and therefore ur leg and whole body are back a bit too far

I am not a proffesional at critique, but it seems as though you are not getting at of your saddle enough for the 2-point. Anyone agree??

Oh, well I learned something new! I am a hunter/jumper, so i didnt know that :) haha. I do agree that you should practice on not being left behind. It helps me if I count the strides to the jump. Try it out
