    Jumping -

    I see that you need to release just a little more. For the speed your going, you can still hold a little, but just a tiny bit more follow is in order.

    Bring your shoulders back - you are hunching them just a bit over the jumps. I would ride around in two point for as much of the ride as you can. Just stay there, in two point, during your flat. Make sure your trainer says you look good, and just stay there, in that position. This will help muscle memory, and help you get better strength in all areas.

    Do you go to the gym? Do you do any sort of workout? I heavily reccommend it. Core work, leg work, is what I do. I might only do it 3 times a week now, but before I did those workouts every day of the week (not weekends,) and it has really done a lot of good to my riding!

    You have amazing potential :) Keep going!!

    Do you mean I should ride the course in two-point? :)

    I think that would be a good idea... What exercises could you suggest? (what I could do at home) ;)

    Thanks ;D

    Your leg still swings back a bit, This could also be from the fact that your horse is too short for you so your lower leg doesn't have much to grab on to.

    It's almost like you're using them for balance, OP. I would work on your core strength on the flat before you jump but that's just me.
