Slip and I Jumping- Video and Pictures

I get told of for going into half seat because riders here in Australia, don't do it as much I suppose ? So I try not to do half seat but sometimes I just have to, like I can't help it.
All these pictures and this video is from Riding yesterday ! Some one thought I nearly rode 1 hour and a half ! But I spent 30 minutes warming up and than 10 minutes moving the camera around.
I've been riding Slip nearly every single day ! Except for today because we need a rest :) and I went to bed 4am yesterday uploading this video! And I woke up at 1 am. I also free jumped him the day previous to yesterday and he can jump 1 meter without me on his back, so we just have to work our way up to that but before we go higher... we need to go wider !
We had 2 refusals and poles were knocked down 5 times, so I definitely pushed us today. But it was really fun and I think I will have more confidence over the smaller jumps now.

Much too much pinching at the knee. This is why your leg is swinging back over fences.

really ? I don't feel my leg swinging back. And I have been told my leg position is fine by other people. Any one else ?

The angle / lighting is really no good for a critique... But yes in some of the pictures / video it does appear your leg is swinging back, you also look a little too 'active' / like you're sitting back too soon.

Ok ill keep my heels down, and try to relax so I don't pinch with my knee. Sitting back to quickly explains why I feel like I thrust forward after the landing. Any tips to try and work on that ? I suppose just practice ?

You can see your leg swinging back when you start to go over the jump, and then swinging forward to the girth on the landing. Keeping your heal down more and turning your toes out slightly will help you not pinch your knees at much and use your calf more. Also, your 2-point is fine taking off but once you get to the peak of the jump until you land, you sit back in the saddle and your arms go straight; you need to stay in your 2-point from take off until when you land. Try staying in your 2-point for 3 strides after the jump. This should get you to focus on keeping your 2-point for the whole jump and not just the take off.

Very cute horse! He uses his body very well over the jumps, although he could sharpen up his front end. I expect that will come with time though, if he's green.

I think some of the difficulty you're having holding your body over the jumps that causes you to sit down just a little too early, stems from your throwing your body at him a little on take off. I think if you focus on just holding your position, all the way from take off through landing, you won't end up sitting down too early and your lower leg won't want to slide back on take off. Different people are helped by visualizing different things to achieve this - some really benefit from being told to "hold their shoulders" at the base of the jump, which allows them to say in a solid position, while letting the horse's jump close their hip angle, and others tend to do better being told to "wait for the horse's hind legs" to jump.

Overall, you have a nice position and a well executed crest-release, moving towards an auto release at times.

You mentioned that your horse pulled several rails the last time you rode him. This may be from riding to a deep distance - he looks like he wants to jump over his shoulder a little, and that form, coupled with a deep distance often results in rails. If he's green and still figuring out how to use all his parts, adding a ground line at the base of the jump may really help him. Low, ramp-y oxers can help sharpen up a horse's front end as well, and may be beneficial for him. His tendency to want to jump over his shoulder though is another good reason to work on holding your upper body at the base of the jump, to encourage him to rock back over his hocks and jump up.

Thanks all for this awesome critique, it really helps to have all this critique. I will be trying my best to have toes pointed out so I can stop knee pinching that much and I will be also trying to stay in 2 point during my landing. In general I will try my best, and also another question What does a low rampy oxer look like ? I like the term " wait for the horses hind legs to jump" I will try and visualise that in my head :) thanks all I really am serious about how I ride and I try and critique myself all the time, but many opinions are much needed !

Also is an auto release bad ? What exactly is an auto release ? I used to never release at all, because I was not relaxed. Now I just through my arms up, for now, but later ill try and work on an appropriate release.

Yep Slip is a green horse to jumping he, has been jumping for an amount of time that equals year but he was jumping so low last year he didn't really improve, because when I leased him he would refuse SOOO MUUCHH omg. Ok I also know why I sit back to soon when jumping, I thought that going into like a half seat after you land is bad and that you had to sit up straight after you jump, and have your seat in the saddle... I just watched the 2012 Olympic show jumpers last night and they were in 2 point/ half seat after the jump and during the landing of a jump.
