If your horse is too heaving on the forehand and you feel the need to "lighten" him, do half halts further from the jump to help him engage the haunch a bit. Taking your horse in heavy and snatching him will make it difficult to jump any larger jumps, especially at speed.
    Sorry, I know you didn't ask for critique, but this will get in your way and you two do have promise.
    Like I said before, I know what I did wrong, and what I needed to improve. That was the first and last time I did that in a show. I don't need to do that anymore, and nor do I ever do that. Thank you though!

    Good deal. Good luck in your jumping. It is such fun to have a great friend to compete with ie; your horse.
