Smile Good form over jumps?

This is Chance, my appendix gelding.
I'm just wondering if he has good form over jumps for the hunter ring.
The jumps are shorter than what we usually jump because we both had had 3 weeks off of jumping. We jump 2'6-3' usually.

Thanks for watching!

P.S I know my form is a bit sloppy. But as I mentioned, I was off jumping for 3 weeks. And I need to work on keeping my heels down more.

Because the jumps are so low, she isn't really trying, therefore, it's hard to even tell what her form is like.

This. Try getting some jumps at LEAST 2'3" if you can.

The jumps are to low to know if shes got good form. Work your way up each week to see and get some pics of her free-jumping over stuff and get pics. Thats a way to help or videos either one. :)
Anyways,
I won't critique your riding. Because as you said you were off 3 weeks you were just WAYYY to far on her neck and leaning to much. anyways,
good job cant wait to see some videos/pics

Ok, I'll try to get some video of higher jumps this weekend or next week.
I agree that I am leaning to far into his neck. I'll work on it next ride. :)
Criticism is good, when it is constructive! :)
