Jumping critique

Can you please critique my jumping? =]]
This was taken at a show a few weeks ago, just a very low key one but Toby pretty much freaked at every single jump on course (even though he can jump like double at home) so my riding instructor took us in during the lunch break to straighten things out..we were both pretty tense at first, which is why I ask can you please just ignore the first minute of the video...my second 'round' is alot better, although I still know I have a LOT to improve on. :roll:
And I also know it's really hard to see the video clearly..sorry.

Hey, very good!

But i have a few things,

try sitting forwards with the horse, you do most the time, but sometimes you do it to early or to late and dosnt look half as good as when you are doing it right!

Try loosening off the reins sometimes to let him/her go!

Obviously i dont know your horse, so i dont know his/her habits. These are just from what i saw.

Good luck for the future!

hmm it was kinda blurry as you said so i can't figure out much but like she said you do need to lean forward a little more and at the right times. Maybe practice some on the times you lean forward. I can't tell with the reins and much of anything else though it was too blurry for me. But otherwise keep up the great work :D
