Smile If you're willing to critique another horse video..

This is me and my boy jumping some, I'd love a critique of how you think we're doing. I've taught him myself & haven't had lessons myself in a couple of years. However, I do have a trainer on hand that I can ask questions if needed.

I'd like to see just a tad more two-point from you.

There's also something off about your arms, but I can't put my finger on it. Perhaps someone else can specify or tell me I'm crazy

My only suggestion is to steady your lower leg- my very untrained eye picks that out first & foremost. It's actually pretty steady over the jumps, but cantering up & away from them, they swing a bit. Overall, though, not bad. Glad you wear a helmet.

Cinder- Wish you could put your finger on it! Haha. I've always noted something weird about my arms too.

Horseluver- Thanks. My leg is normally rock solid, I guess jumping just knocks it off a bit. I'm definitely a helmet advocate. I would never do serious riding without it. The only time I won't wear one is if I hop on him to ride him to the pasture because I'm too lazy to walk. I don't want to fall and bust my head open!

No stirrup work helps. That's my only real suggestion. I'm still at the stage in my riding where I can see flaws or issues but I have a very limited amount of suggestions to correct these problems. That being said, I think you have a good foundation here and it will only get better.

I put this video in slow motion on my computer and watched my arms. Do you think it's that I need a bit more of a release?

I think you need more release over the jump and then more bend in your arms when you're riding to and away from the jump.
