Jumping Critique

I wanna know how people would really judge my riding, because I don't know if what people tell me is what they mean, like my friend always yells at me that my horse is "so perfect" and she just has a crazy thoroughbred mare. I'm trying to figure out how to attach a video of me riding from youtube that isn't from my youtube account. Anyone have any idea?

Links to Videos

Here are a few videos of me riding Rocky:





-In the first video, I know I have MAJOR cat paw with my left wrist, but that's something I'm working on right now.

-In the last video, Rocky was really tired from a cross country course earlier in the day. So he was tired, a little flat, and kinda just poking along, but we were just schooling this jump course after the xc derby that I got first place in!

I think you look great.

Your legs are solid at the girth which is where they should be *especially for CC* and your heels are deep. Your irons are placed where they should be on your foot and your toe is at a great angle *you are riding on the correct place of your calf*

You are down and low into your tack, your seat appears to be over the center of your saddle, I can see the Pommel infront of you and you are over your horses center of gravity.

You are looking up and you have a decent release. Could be a bit more lax and I'd prefer to see an automatic but meh, your form over all is where it should be - solid, secure and out of your horses way.

Yeah I know he does! He looks at the brightly colored ones and isn't sure about jumping them or not. But he does every time, its just a weird jump. This is also Rocky's first year jumping (coming from being a former western pleasure horse) and doing shows but he's coming along quite nicely. Thanks guys!

Great job in the stadium phase. He wasn't really sure about those first few fences. You stayed with him and got him focused on the job at hand.

What level was this? BN? Also the cross country seemed like a really long course to me. Is that typical?
