    Doubt it really matters for jumpers, but at the very beginning when you were trotting in, you were on the wrong diagonal.

    It looks like you only had to correct his forward motion slightly with a half halt here and there. You did hold him a bit to a few fences, but it didn't interfere with anything, as the striding was all correct. You did loose some impulsion in the first round coming to the pink and purple line, but it ended up working in your favour.

    Your horse doesnt bend very much around the turns, which could become problematic if you have a course that has tighter turns or any rollbacks.

    The only thing I have to say about your position is that you should shorten your reins just a tiny bit, so that you arent having your hands in your stomach when you are pulling back.

    Overall, it looked really nice though. Congrats on being back in the show ring!

    Wow.. I give you credit. I'd probably be eating fences left and right. Then again, your horse looks trustworthy!

    For my critique for you to get back in the saddle, here it goes:
    1. Check your diagonals.I know its the "mini-grand-prix" but still, diagonals are basic basic riding skills(:

    2. Before you even start jumping that much or higher, really work on your legs. They were swinging crazily with every step your horse took. I know your legs aren't going to be super strong after 11 months (trust me, I would probably be the same!) but your legs are the roots to your riding. Although its not based on your equitation, you still need strong legs!

    3. Your horse has a nice stride, work on getting some better spots to your fences. I count out loud to myself, and it totally helps. Looking for your distance will help too.

    All together, way to go! Great job for your first time back(: Your horse looks very broke, and trustworthy so keep it up!

    Congratulations!

    Your guys' speed is looking a lot better, but I'm still seeing a lot of the same faults that you two had previously, namely:
    - chair seat (I'm thinking the saddle doesn't help)
    - still fairly handsy; you have to learn how to get Oscar to respond more to your seat and weight
    - distances

    I'm sorry I don't want to seem argumentative (sp?) but I had litterly no reins in the last video? He was pulling me forward so I let them go and held him back with just my seat and weight?
    As I said don't want to seem argumentive but want to stand my corner :)

    Your reins were very long in that video, but you were still pulling him a lot.
