Jumping competition :)

Hello again again,

Here comes a new video of me and Topper at a competition ! :)
This time the competition is at our stables, so yes that's our riding house, where I ride and train

Like always, we competed in the 110 cm. Class. There are two classes. Please critique rider, horse, the over all ride - whatever!

Or just watch and leave a comment if you wish too, although critique is always more welcome (what with this being a critique board and what not).

The First Class:

The Second Class:

I noticed a few things on your ride. When you get too close to the fence, you have a tendency of drawing your hands back towards your body instead of giving your horse a release. I almost want to say you need to take up on the reins a bit more, not that you don't have contact, but it looks like you lean back. This may be the way you need to ride the fences for this horse, but it was something that just stood out to me as different.

For the record, I'm insanely jealous that this is your home turf.

Westphalian?????/ WOW! Jealous. .. Love them! So anyway! You look like a great match... The few things that I noticed.
-Coming out of the saddle too much... It looks like your're floating above the saddle instead of just hovering, with your fanny just an inch or two. When you come out too much it's usually because you're almost standing on your knees? I'm not sure if that's what you're doing, but I just thought I'd mention it.
-Also, just as a realy picky critique because your horse is an excellent jumper and there's barely anything else... Your horses legs.. In the first video if you watch the last jumps in slow motion you'll see that your horse will bring is legs up, and then right before the jump, take another step with his hind.. I think if you get a slower, more relaxed approach ,and then make your signals clear, and think "UP!" you'll get a quicker response, and your horse will take off exactly where it's "right". Hope this help!

He looks fast! And you are sitting very heavy on the approach and pushing with your lower body and holding him back with your hands and upper body, Either push or don't don't push but not both at the same time. However, it seems to have worked for you and your horse jumped very nicely.

As a hunter who's only been jumping about 6 months I am not qualified to critique your level of riding BUT I just wanted to tell you that I think you have awesome music selections on your videos. I always look forward to watching them and hearing what you've chosen to play! I do think you're great fun to watch ride as well.

Woah! That is freaky! Sorry... just watched the slow-mo and the horse does take an extra step with his back legs... interesting.

The one thing I noticed is your knees come off the sides of the horse when you are in the air..don't grip with your knees, but they should stay on your horses sides

Personally I would go back to a lot of flat work lots of dressage to get him listening to ur seat so that way you can control him better while jumping and not have to haul on his mouth so much to get him to slow down and get him working off his haunches.. once he feels stronger and more secure doing that he prob wont rush nearly as much and think he has to fling himself over the jumps.. just my $0.02
