    I don't like your critique saying things without having explanations untill later is not good.

    OP, I think you have received some honest and helpful critiques and naturally people are going to offer some suggestions on how to fix/change any position issues to help you.

    I agree with the above posters that your position looks a insecure, leg slides back over the fence and looks like you may sit back too soon over the jump, your other video in the other thread is easier to critique as it shows more then just a very short clip.

It looks a bit disorganized / your position looks a bit off, possibly from the awful distance you got. It may also be because your stirrups are a bit long, giving you an unstable base of support.
    Your position is insecure, your stirrups are too long.
    You're too disorganized at the canter.
    Your position is off but it's difficult to pin point it from a short clip.
    Over all you're insecure and don't look ready to jump this height.

    Excuse me, but I had to point this out ...

    First, refer to the first page of this: is my Jumping position improving ? Video thread. Alexischristina posts a lovely critique here, on your thread. To which, you reply with some excuses, and "Good critique, very good:)" (post #3).

    Now, on THIS thread, you get another very nice critique from alexischristina... which you rudely turn away, and put down. And THEN you have the nerve to say "Where are the people that used to critique me ? I liked their critique, because it was just critique..." on this thread.
    Well, quite obviously, 'the people that used to critique' you are right here, telling you eactly what you could be doing to improve. It's not the other people here that are the issue - it's you. Sorry if I've been rude, just calling it as I see it.

    [QUOTE=OliviaMyee;1863873]yea I shut it of coz I am pissed other people who have critique me in the past didn't tell me I shouldn't be riding or that I should be jumping lower. All I want is critique and if I am told that I should be jumping lower why isn't there an explanation for that ? [QUOTE]

    "...and Im happy to know when Im jumping small and Im confidant I can jump the right way ... I will only do small jumps for now and practise releasing for Slip like I did for the little pony, I think that allot of the issues come from confidence and I don't want to loose any more confidence jumping to high..."

    I agree with a lot of what has already been said on this thread and your other thread. It does look a little weird when you are going over the fences, like you are just "tipping" your body over the fence. When you are physically able to, shortening your stirrups will help majorly with this as it will help give you a stronger base and not a long dangling leg. I know you have already said that you won't jump any lower, but it is highly recommended in order to ensure you have your basic foundation down so you don't run into these issues when you jump higher and higher. Get your stirrups shorter, practice your two point on the flat and over fences. Try to bend your hips over the fence without quickly "tipping" forward. You also need to stay out of the saddle longer upon landing and stay off his mouth (why you sometimes get thrown back). Make sure you give him a release and keep it. When cantering, you look a little sloppy. Keep your arms and hands still while remaining constant with your body. Also, you need to start squeezing to go faster or to keep him going, not kicking him with your entire legs and bringing your legs completely off his sides. If you find yourself needing to give him an extra "push" right before the fence, use the technique of keeping your leg on him, then adding slightly more pressure and slightly more pressure the closer you get... don't just race towards the fence and kick kick kick to shove him over it. He looks like a lovely, forgiving horse. You should also try some lower gymnastics with him and see if you can do them on the lunge or with no reins so you can focus on your balance.

    I also want to add that you do appear to be a good rider, but you do need to take the critiques posted here to heart and really focus on what I have said. I also just noticed that right before the fence it looks like you go into a scrambling panic. Keep your composure to the fence, jump, then regain your composure. The fence is only an obstacle in the way of your flat work. Yes, the fence is technically a big deal, but no change (i.e. A last minute scramble) should be made in your flat work right before the fence.

    Visual examples...
    Compare your video to one of mine I am posting as well. This is not meant to compare our abilities as riders, but watch your first few approaches to the jumps and watch mine. In especially your first few approaches, you are going pretty well, then at the last stride or so you start to move your body, legs, and arms all over.

    This video is almost a year old, but pay attention to my position approaching the fence. It remains consistent, consistent, consistent, up to the fence. -- Please ignore the wrong leads; he had issues with getting the correct lead in this direction.

    I also wanted to point out that just because you go back to smaller jumps, it doesn't mean you are a bad rider or "less than". This horse and I jumped a little over 3' successfully, but did not lose pride in jumping lower jumps at home, or at a clinic.
