Talking Show Critique :)

Hiya everyone! Me and Diego went to a schooling show the other day. We competed in 2ft- 1st, 2ft6- 1st, and 2ft9- 2nd. He sure knows what he's doing and he certainly put up with a lot from me. Brutal critique would be appreciated :)

I noticed that I was tugging on his mouth a lot, I had chicken wings for most of the time, i forgot my release a few times and I got left behind a few times.

Wow, it's really hard to tell from this video. Most of the jumps are so far away that I can't tell what you are doing at all.

Diego looks great.

tbh, I was taking that round easy and letting Diego go at his own pace XD.
Idk if you guys can tell anything more from this one, it's pretty bad as well :P

All I can see is that the pace is a tad too fast, but that could be just the video anyway. You look fine to me. Can't see any detail unfortunately, so can't give more tips :)

I also agree that the pace is a tad bit fast although it is jumpers the speed would be okay if he looked more controlled he is plowing through the jumps abit. The only other thing i notice is that you are abit heavy coming down on his back but this could easily be fixed if he was in a more collected canter so hes not going crazy fast and bouncing you everywhere. He looks like a very reliable horse and a great jumper !

There is a difference with speed and speed with collection , He seems to look asthough he is plowing through some jumps .Sorry just what I saw from looking at the video you did ask for a critique
