It looks like when you're trying to drive him forward in front of a jump, you tend to lift your hands way up. What you need to be doing instead is keeping your hands lower and widening them & driving with your seat, incorporating half-halts if he tries to get too quick. This creates impulsion and promotes correct striding without letting him get too fast or silly. Also, like Allison said, you need to be letting him know over the jumps where he is going. You're good about looking towards the next fence, but try to incorporate some open-rein-aids as well.

He is a GORGEOUS horse!

I think it would be better if you stayed in 2-point a TAD longer...it looks like you're already sitting before you hit the goround.
Otherwise you two look GREAT

I only noticed some slight things in your video but I really enjoyed watching it, your hands move a lot when you are coming up to a jump, try and be a bit quieter, he fell around a few of the corners a bit much, I can see that he is a very strong horse and you were working really well to hold him back with that bit (which one have you got in?) and with the double reins,

You make a beautiful team and keep posting those vids

I agree with Allison Finch, you need to show your horse where he is going, open up and look to the way you want to go to.

Other then that you guys are very cute together :)

in the picture you look very good :)
The video is also good but your not always approaching to jumps in a straight line

Keep your feet on the ground when your head's in the clouds.

We usually have him in an elevator. But for that show I had to fill a Eq class for my friend so we threw him in a pelham and I really enjoyed using it alot more so we used it again the next day. :]

Thanks!
