Just add one thing? Try bending your elbows a bit and relax your shoulders which should automatically make you lean back instead of forward (: other than that.. I LOVED IT!

I thought you both looked really good. Just a few things: A little more release(just a litttle nothing big), try not to get bumped out of the saddle after the jump sink down in your seat(if that makes sense), lastly while cantering tyr not to push so much with your upper body and arms it looks a little akward. But if you need to push him a little carry a crop or a jumping whip :) In better words try to keep your arms still.

Thanks Sonny, I'm actually working on sitting deep, if you've watched my other video's you can see that i've improved on it, its just going to take some time. As for released, Johnny does get overly excited while jumping and needs a tight rein to keep him under control, he loves to play with his bit, so hopefully when i get his figure eight noseband he will pay a bit more attention and not get so worked up before a jump. But thanks a lot for the help! I'll keep it in mind (:
