please critique! trot, canter, and jump

This is a horse I'm thinking of leasing this summer, so please critique these few videos!
*note: it is not me riding, but you're welcome to critique the riding as well as the horse*

Thank you!

Actually, if that is not you riding, then we will NOT make a critique of that rider. If she wants a critique, she can come on and ask for it.

Without being specific, I can say that the rider is not showing the horse to its best potential.

Yes sorry - I was trying to figure out a way to edit my post to say don't critique the rider, ONLY THE HORSE. I wasn't really thinking about that when I was posting it :/

Thanks for your reply though!

Well what we can fairly say from the videos is that the horse was not lame on the day, and that it appears to be fairly tolerant and willing.

Without knowing what your skills and ambitions are, I don't think I can add more

Hmm The horse looks a little lazy but willing to do the jumps- And looks sweet-
Cough- I agree with Tiny- cough cough

Yeah I agree with tiny too, I don't mean to critique the rider as it isn't you but I'm not seeing any release over the jumps.

Tolerant horse, and I feel they have more to them that would be revealed under good training and riding :)

Smooth trot to canter (on the correct lead too) transition.. which is nice to see they didn't run into it.
Wallaby and Ripplewind like this.

The horse looks sweet and willing. It's hard to tell though because, like Tiny said, it's hard to see the full potential of the horse with this rider. Not meaning to critique or anything, but he (or she?) is being very restricted in these videos.

You need to keep all your weight into your heels and get off your toes. When you jump it looks like you are about to tip over.

BlueMoonLvr.. this isn't the OP's video. This is critique on the horse only
