You look absolutely beautiful considering this is only your third time! Your lower leg is pretty stable (something I have a problem with and I've been jumping for years) and you and your horse look very beautiful and soft. Your eyes are up and you are very focused. The only thing I would say right now is to work on your angles...sometimes you don't get to the jumps straight and you also sometimes seem a little lost on course. Or maybe it's just big. But keep up the good work! :)

Very well done!! Nice position and everything. I have to agree about the angles though. Don't cut the corners and it should help.

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.

Very good job! Is that your horse?

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
