Jumping Critique- Video from my lesson this Saturday.

So this is me and my gelding Xander in our lesson this Saturday. I would appreciate any critiques, tips etc. Pretty much whatever you think of I want to know! One thing I really want to know is if it seems like I look crooked at all, I was having some back issues which made me (hips, shoulders, legs) crooked (right leg two inches longer than left leg). The chiros been working on it and I think I'm almost back to normal. Also, how is my release? Posted a critique a while back and was told I needed to work on it.

Oh yeah, and we were supposed to go to the left of the cone. My gelding however is convinced he is infinitely smarter than me and decided he wanted to practice rollbacks. We had fixed that by the end of the lesson, but this ended up being the only decent video.

So here is the video (phone quality, sorry): And here is a still from the video:

Thank you! :)

Okay, I'll try and give you a little bit of advice and hopefully you can find something that you think is helpful (:

Firstly, in your approach to the jump, your lower leg is really nice! Good job, this something so many riders don't put enough effort into and makes their whole 'jump' fall apart. Be careful not to pump your upper-body at the canter though, allow yourself to relax and go with the horses movement. I noticed that this increases a bit when you go around the corners, sit 'tall' and remember that the most important thing to do is to ride effectively and stay relaxed. If you tense up, even subconsciously, it will cause your horse to tense up as well.

Over the actual jump, it looks like you get a little ahead of the movement. Try and wait for the horse to go over the actual jump before you move into the two point position. It looks like your bracing on your horses neck a little to. Try to really use your core to hold yourself. In the middle of the jump, it looks like you are sitting a little to deeply in the saddle. Try to use your leg to 'stand up' a little more and put a little bit more space in between you and the horses back. This will also help you to stop your lower leg from sliding backwards a bit.

And, I'm really sorry, but I don't have time to write about the second jump. (:
