OMG!! I ride a 13.3h pony that looks almost identical, and her old name used to be Chloe but we changed it because we already had a pony named chloe! That is WEIRD!!

You look pretty good. You have a strong base but it looks like the top of you're back is roached but i can't tell if that is you or just you're number pushing you're jacket down. In the first picture you're giving a long release which is ok but it looks like you could have done a shorter one but it may have been the spot you had because the other two jumping pictures you have a nice release.
Overall very well done. Good luck in the future.

It is not just a horse,
It is the one thing that keeps me from being just a girl

Your release in the first photo does seem a little too much, but better too much than not enough, imo. Third one looks good though. Seems you are toeing out a lot, like you have too much lower leg over the jumps? But overall you look very balanced and solid, cute horse, nice pictures, your form is much better than mine! :)

In the picture, to much slack there in the reins. But in the video i may notice why :(, she does not respect that bit at all. After the first jump it look like she was about to pull the reins right out of your hands? Also toed out a lot, your heals were good and down but your feet were pointed out to much. As well, you had her on the right lead the entire time, is she sloppy on the left lead? Or maybe you just like jumping her threw the course on a single lead. When i warm up over jumps, I do lead changes as much as i can. The horse has to keep focused and attracted to his job. Plus i think lead changes during a warm up are key for balance. But other than that she jumped very clean and smooth. Threw the video you had good hand positions over the jumps, correct pattern trot and canter. Plus she had no refusal, accept the nose/head issues which i don't like in a hunter . Pretty horse. Good luck on selling her :).
