ErinMalone, stronger bit is most certainly not needed, I can pull her up in an instant in the bit she's currently in. I do take a pull on the approach as she is keen, but I'd rather that than having to kick her. When doing a course she is more fluid and I tend to sit there and other than keeping leg on for support, I do nothing else.

I think you fly fine, it is your landing that concerns me...

Horses are proof that God love's us and wants us to be happy!

I definitely see a change in your riding after your confidence drop. Your lower leg doesn't look too bad, but you keep getting left behind and then flug forward onto the horse's neck a little, especially over the larger jumps. I agree that you don't really give a release, but know in another thread you already discussed why. Otherwise, good job! Sorry for your spill!!
