Pretty good. But your not jumping that high so you don't have to lean so far forward in the jump. Just try rising out of the saddle. If you are jumping like 1 metre 20 then you would lean that far forward. Other wise your a very kind and good rider, nice horse too.

There's no need to really lean that far forward. I agree with the above poster. The jump isn't that high, and you need to keep your heels down and keep a nice solid leg position. It seemed after the first jump your horse was really racing around that corner, so that needs to change :)

As far as your riding position it was very hard to tell. You seem a little hunched in your shoulders from what I could tell when you were 2-pointing.

That's about all I can say, but I'm sure some of the other jumpers on here will say more.

It looks to me like you put your hands on your horses neck over the jumps, but that can be fixed. I like your release.

Like the other posters said, you don't need to lean that much, but all in all, not bad :)

I like the fact that your hip is working the way it should, opening and closing over the fence, while your crotch stays over the middle of the saddle. It also looks like your lower leg is rock solid underneath. I do agree with the other posters that you may be folding your hip too much for the size of the fence, and may need to wait for the horse's motion to push you.

The horse you're on seems like he has a bit of a motor to the fence; one part of the video shows a motorcycle turn; with the horse leaning over and scrambling a bit.
