He is adorable :)

To start, your lower leg position did not move throughout your entire ride, so kudos! :)

In the first fence on the video you roached your back a bit going over, although its hard to tell but it looks like he may have gotten in a little close so that may be why.

Otherwise, I don't have to many things to pick about. After a few of the fences you stayed forward a little longer, and he was on the forehand a bit. In the one corner his head is tipped to the outside because you are using a lot of outside rein to move him out to the rail, which I know is a hunter thing, but I'd like to see him a little straighter.

Very very cute horse! :)

I'm not good at jumping critique, but you have a very nice horse! :)

Very nice, just release a little bit more with your hands.

I thought you were a little to active with your upper body on the flat.

Hmm well.....

You seem to pump alot...this is because your butts glued to the saddle. For jumping, even in eq, you should be in a little half seat or your butt should be hovering over the saddle just a lil bit. That's all I see!

Very nice round! I like your release alot. You aren't doing the posing which hunters get the bad rep. For. Instead of just trying to look pretty and throwing the reins to the horse you keep a slight contact with your horse and close your body angle. You could sink into your heels a bit more but they are pretty nice. Just becareful about how much you use your reins in the turns. Coming to the last line you were noticably pulling on the rein to get your horse to go straight. Even though the judge can't see that side becareful doing that. You want to use more of your leg instead. Overall though, job well done! Nice solid round on a nice solid horse ha ha ha

It was a very nice round, the only part I would critique was that you move your upper body a bit to much when your not jumping, try staying in half seat between jumps maybe.

You seem like your really rocking in the saddle so try and just slighly glide in the saddle and release more.. otherwise its nice.. btw nice horse :)

Thanks so far. I know I pump but I don't mean to. He's not slow or lazy. I sit so deep in the lines to slow him down so we get the right strides. I don't pump on purpose tTo make him go faster, but I can't STOP! This is what I need excerizes for, so if anyone has any sugestions that would be great!
