I think you've got a great style, and have a nice strong base! The only thing I would say is that you seem to be overjumping a bit - You are covering the horse's whole neck at time, and it isn't necassary over these smaller jumps. Are you used to jumping larger? Just try to tone it down a notch - Think about not two pointing for a while. Just standing up in the saddle and stretching your arms. This opposite extreme of what you have should balance our your position nicely eventually. I like your heel a lot, too!! :)

You look better than I've ever looked, I'm sure! But I don't know much about jumping so I couldn't really give you any advice, sorry. Good job though!

Your release is a wee bit over the top. We joking call that a "Grand Prix" release, around my barn. My opinion would be to keep a better feel on your horses mouth, and not fling your hands up the neck.

More than anything you need to ride your distances because your position is great but the fan and the barrels is too far away and the dark bay horse got too close to the base of the jump.

You have a massive release, try letting the horses neck come to meet your hand instead of letting your hands meet their ears. Hahaha :) also, it seems you get ahead a little, im trying to imagine you on take off. I like your leg form though :)

Never a problem!! :) And you can tell ;) You look awesome, really! Just a bit 'over the top' for jumps at this size. Could you post some pics of you going higher? Would love to see your position as the bars pull up. I garuntee if you mock your position here exactly, you will get some wonderful feedback!
