I notice your leg is swinging A LOT before/after jumps. Be solid in your foundation. Heels down more. And i assume you are a hunter, follow your horse down more with your body instead of snapping right back up. Hunter judges like to see your horse complete the motion. Thats just my opinion though. You look more like an eventer on the back side of jumps... And thats complete opposite of hunter. hahaha Good over the jumps though. Keep ridin hard :)
