What do you think of my boy?

Critique my horse and I! Be as harsh as you would like. I am aware of my equitation flaws, but I would love some feedback :) Thanks!

I'm on my mobile so I don't have the keyboard to type - but the thing that really stuck out to me is that you're too busy. Let the horse jump, don't let yourself get flat over the fences, and learn an auto release so you arent throwing the reins away over every jump.
A good member to maybe PM for a critique would be Allison Finch.

I paused over the jump at 0.50 and I noticed that your lower leg could do with some work. As you approach the jump put your heels down. Think of it as dropping your heels to the ground and your toes to the sky - this will stop your leg from sliding backwards.

As Allie mentioned, when you go over the actual jump you become very 'flat'.
