Here we are again

I posted this a couple weeks ago as an update to a previous thread, but I hadn't heard anything back so I thought I'd post it again as a new thread :)

Any constructive criticism is more than wecome :)

Thanks in advance!

Original Post:
Here are some videos I got the other day, so if anybody would like to add some more input, feel free! I know he came off on the wrong lead in one of the grid work videos. This horses right lead has been a complete nightmare. I can now consistently get (and stay on) the right lead on the flat, so now I am going to start asking him for it off fences too. As of now, we get it about 75% of the time.

Warm-up for jumping:

Beautiful horse! Love the pink combination on him too!

I like your lower leg, and you seem very confident. I know there are a LOT of varying opinions on proper 2-point position, but I would like to see a little more action from you over the jumps. It seems more like you're just standing in your stirrups instead of actually following the motion of your horse.

When you look at picture of all the professionals, you can see that they are basically collapsed over their horses, with their rear ends still over the middle of the saddle, heels down, legs stationary. It's like they simple "curl" their chest into the horse.

My only "critique!"
