when you are jumping it looks like your crotch goes over the pommel, just keep behind the pommel... nice jumping.

Please, I don't care how good of a rider or experience you or anyone else is, wear a helmet! It only takes something small like your horse to trip or take a bad step for you to come off.

I definitely have to agree with BeauReba. It was the first thing I noticed as well. Especially for jumping a helmet should be worn.

As for critique... I think you guys look very nice together. Try not to cut your corners as much. Keep your eyes up and plan ahead. Try not to think of the jumps individually. Plan out your course as a SERIES of jumps, not just one jump at a time. I don't think you have bad form at all. Back could be a little straight though, and loosen your reins a tad. It looks like you are holding his head too much. You have a very beautiful horse. He looks like a natural jumper. Beautiful lead change! Although, try to keep him straighter across that diagonal. More pace is needed, as he broke to a trot in that one corner. But all in all, I think you guys look really fantastic! Good work!!

yeah I think you guys did quite well, only thing I would mention is I think his form over the fence would be a trillion times better if you rode a nicer line into the fence the corner was a bit rough not bad or mean but could be tidier. Also him being more collected would help, as I often say a good jumper needs a really solid flat work base to be any good. If you had him collected into the fence the whole experience will be more pleasant for you both and will help both of your guys form as well. Good luck

PLEASE wear a helmit. There is an article posted on HF that says why.

Other than that you look nice.

I was just looking around and I couldn't find the article, but I did find you jumping WITH a helmit! That's good!
