Please critique a jump...

Here's a jump, from maybe two weeks ago (?). Please critique - rip us apart. I pretty much know what's wrong, I just want to see what we can do.
I think he did a good job - considering it was a fairly tight rollback, however I just wish he could have a half decent expression over the fence! He just seems so serious.

Thank you!

Thanks! Seriously - he is concentrating. It's adorable, but a lot of hunter judges will be sort of "madish" about it.

Isn't that great of a critiquing picture, but I'll try


It looks like your a tad bit ahead of him. Your knees are pinching, causing your lower leg to totally loose it. Your lower legs are too far back, there is no weight in your heels, and your toes are pointed out. If you just opened up your knee and griped with your calf, your lower leg would improve 110%.

It also looks like you have chicken wings .Also you need just a liitttllle bit more of a release.

That's what I could pick up, it's hard to tell since it's dark and small.

He's a cute little jumper! You guys make a great team.

Thank you so much! I will keep that in mind next time I jump (although, I say that and never do!). I'm sorry about the picture size and how dark it is. It's from a video.
