You look really good, just need a few tweaks. You look kind of stiff in your flat photos so you just need to relax. I love your heels and you elbow to bit line. Over fences, you look like you are jumping ahead a bit which causes your lower leg to slide back. Your toes are going out a bit too much as well which could be caused by your lower leg sliding back, or you are gripping with the back of your calf. You have a good release for this jump height, but I think you might be leaning on his neck a bit. Did he get too close to this jump? I only ask because it looks like his hind legs might be too close to the base of the jump and they are not pushing off evenly. Overall, you look more relaxed over fences and I love your horse's expression. She(?) looks really happy to do her job and you look like you ride her well. Sorry if this seems really nitpicky and if I messed up your horse's gender.
