It's a pretty dark video, hard to tell really - I can't critique you, but your horse seems to lack any and all impulsion. He's plodding at the trot and has no umph over the fence. At least you don't have to worry about him rushing? Other than that, you came off a left turn into the jumps and he took up his right lead...

I'd work on getting him forward and working before asking him over fences, even small crossrails like you had. You need him working and listening before leaving the ground.

don't let him duck out straight after. You'll end up going splat. Otherwise, its ok oh and he's being a bit lollopy and ploddy, kick him on!

He isnt that slow when I canter him before the jump! The jumps were so close that it was hard to turn him in time for the canter. I usualy have to slow him down b/c he rushes. But he was lazy :) When you say duck out straight after, do you mean not finishing on the wall?

The first video is a bit hard to see but the last one you posted he seems to have nice even movements. Very relaxed moving over the jump. I don't have a lot of experience in the jumping area - haven't jumped in a few years - but you looked very relaxed and so does the horse.

K so this is kinda hard to Critique, Im used to critiquing pictures rather than videos..

You don't look too bad for a beginner, I've seen much worse, from people being very far behind in the jump or too far ahead, to terrible hip angles and not giving their horse enough rein. You look pretty good, your heels are down and your timing was good. You can't really ask any more from a beginner Jumper.

P.S for the trot, I would work on getting him to extend and change pace with the trot, makes for a much nicer ride than just plodding along. Use your seat and leg to encourage him to pick up pace as well as slow

I say keep working and you both are going to do really well. There are a lot of more experienced jumpers here that could give you more specifics, but job well done so far!
