First jump video after being off over a year

Well I guess its time for me to share. After being off for a year and a half, ive finally got the funds and time to start riding and showing again! Super excited! Been back riding for about a month now. Took a little video of me and a super cute green pony at my barn.
No need to critique, I know we got a few sticky spots to the jumps. And I know where my weak areas are at the moment. Ps dont mind the super corny music either lol.

You haven't jumped in over a year and you look that good? That's not fair!!! Could I please borrow you rock solid lower legs and your horse's impulsion for my show this weekend? Looks like you're enjoying being back in the swing of things. Cute jumping bean of a pony too.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Wow - after watching this, I may get the Jumping Bug!

(And I thought the music was fine. I saw a YouTube video of someone doing low jumps like that, and they'd paired it up with a metal/hard rock number. It was so weird and funny I couldn't pay attention to the jumping...)

hey, it'[s great your getting back into it. my thing is the lower leg is solid but too far forward coursed by the saddle.

also just a question...why are you jumping in a standing martingal??? if the horse throws it's head up then dressage will fix that.

other then that, you look great!! nice flying changes!!!

Thank you guys, I can always count on people here for a pick me up. :) Im glad the music is working alright too.
She a little mare, and we have no idea what here bloodlines are at the moment. She's a fancy little thing though. My guess is a welsh/QH cross.

CoropratePride- Jumping in a standing martingale is definetly the "norm" over here in the hunter ring, weather they 'need' to wear it or not. So if trainer says put the martingale on.... i do. I dont even think I knew what a martingale was before I moved to the states. lol
