    Please critique or jumping :)

    Well I've finally had enough time to feel good about last weeks lesson, now it's time to put the videos out there for you all to rip apart!

    I know we're counterbent around the turns. We worked on that last night and he was much improved. I need a lot more inside leg than I had in these videos.

    I do think I'm getting a lot better at not jumping ahead! Compare:

    So here are the videos! Please be thorough in your critiques!

    The one thing that really stood out for me in the first video was that you almost collapsed on your horse's neck when he planted his front legs right before takeoff - don't collapse down, rather let the horse close your hip angle for you.
    Right as you're landing, your leg looks to slip forwards a little - make sure you keep it nice and solid under your seat.
    Around corners you want to make sure you're not losing impulsion and keep the bend to the inside.
    You are a very talented young rider that's constantly improving - good job :)

    I will leave the position critique to the ones that are really knowledgable but I will say that I think your saddle may be a hair small for you. It looks like you are in almost a "chair seat" on the flat and go beyond the back of your saddle over jumps. I had the same problem with the "chair seat" and I got a saddle a 1/2 size bigger and now my leg is in a much better position and it allows me to ride alot better.your leg in a better position. It will let you sit more centered in your saddle and put your leg in a better position. Just thought I might point that out as it is something that helped me a TON. :) You look good to me :)
