Hunter Critique 2'6"

Hi! So my new lease horse and I did the 2'6" for the first time today, my first time ever showing at 2'6". I won one class and made mistakes in the other two over fences.

Here is the video from the class I won:
The videos from the other classes I did are still loading but this is the good one. I'll put the ones with the mistakes up soon.

Please let me know what I need to work on! I have Carlyle for another 8 months and I would love to move up to the 3ft, obviously don't know if that is possible but he can do it and I am willing to work hard.

Oh also, his left eye is a clear plastic prosthetic, that's why he looks so creepy. Don't mind my creepy ghost horsey haha.

I really like this horse. You rode quite well. The only thing I would say, which I think I can also hear your trainer saying in the background is, "Whoa!"
You need to relax, sit up, and ask for a little more whoa. A nice, quiet, even pace will keep you in the ribbons.

Yeah my horse is a saint, I think you can even hear my trainer talking about that at the beginning "he does his job, he takes care of her." I've been riding for years but he's "my" first horse and this is only our third show, our first show we did the 2'. So we are moving on up! And yup I know I need to slow down, that's something he and I have always struggled with.

His pace may be a little fast but it is consistent. Sitting up and back a little more may slow it down but you want that consistency. I have to say what impresses me more is that even being half-blind he trusts you even in your short time together. He went around, up to and over those fences with confidence.

Yeah we are definitely working on slowing down. Anything else?
