I'm going to seem like a b*tch now and I'm sorry in advance. But what pulling was I doing? I was sitting back and every so often fair enough I had to get his head back up from between his knees but I wouldn't call that pulling nor do I think it looks like pulling?

Have you watched the video ? Your reins are long, but you are still pulling back. Watch the video again and look at your hands

Well come on obviously I've watched the video. My hands are going with the horse when is head goes wherever? I was very conscious not to pull him in the mouth and just try ride him through it.

Sorry but you did pull on his mouth. Can you see how he's opening his mouth ? Watch your approach to the first fence. Long reins don't equal soft hands, soft elbows do.

Just because a horse opens his mouth does not mean he got pulled. It is a horse. A living thing. It opens there mouth without the help of a pull in the mouth. If I pulled his mouth he wouldn't have gone forward at all. He would have stopped which (if I'm correct) he didn't.

Lauren, with all due respect you were still pulling and getting behind the motion. Working on your leg position will help with that; being in a chair seat really exacerbates the problem of being left behind.
I like that you two have slowed down and aren't burning around the course anymore, but you're still missing leads and missing distances. You are catching him in the mouth and you still need to learn how to sit down and steer with your butt and legs.

Not getting into the argument. The only thing that I saw was in the first one you were being left behind and ended up leaning back a lot. But it seemed like it got better in the second video.

Guys.. It's her first course in 11 months. Give her a break. I'm sure she will get better with time and more riding. You already saw my post I'm sure(:

JustJump, Lauren used to post a lot in the past. She asked for a critique, and I see a lot of the same problems she's had since the beginning with Oscar. She has been well advised in the past by many fantastic members, and I know for me it is a little frustrating having my advise thrown by the wayside or argued over... especially when things don't change/improve and the same things are argued over time and time again.

Holy run-on sentence, Batman!!
