    Sorry not a jumper, but I LOVE your pony's willingness, she always looks happy going over the jumps

    You guys look great! :) Very cute pony, you guys make an awesome team.
    Idk if it's the pics, but you could release a little bit more.
    Otherwise, fantastic shots!

    Cutest pony EVER!!
    Haha you guys look great, the only things I would really say would be to stretch down into your heel more b/c that will create a more stable leg which will be important when the jumps get bigger.
    Also as poptart shop said, giving your pony a little more freedom to use his (or her?) neck for balance

    Great job you guys look awesome!

    Thanks guys! All great critique. Yes, my pony is very willing to jump, although she does refuse if you don't get the energy going!

    You both look like a gutsy team!!

    I would place your stirrup iron closer to the ball of your foot. Right now it is too far home, causing stiffness in your ankle and consequently your entire leg. You weight needs to sink into your heel and right now it can't.

    Once your lower leg is corrected, you will be more able to stay with your horses motion over fences. In a few pics, her thrustiness has caused you to become left behind while in other pics, you are jumping ahead a tad. Trot lots of fences with out stirrups to strengthen your lower leg.

    I would also give more of a release. You pony really cracks his back over theses fences, give him enough rein to let him reach over the fence. It looks as if you are balancing a bit on the reins to prevent your upper body from falling back, grab a bit of mane if you need to.

    Good luck!!

    First id like to say that your pony is super gorgeous!
    As said id give a bit more of a release.
    Also in some of your pictures (like the last one) id try closing your hip angle a bit more.

    Close your hip angle more...more release...to allow the little guy to bascule more. Right now he has the "deer jump"...some people call it the carousel horse jump. Tiny modifications...otherwise you guys look fantastic!
