Jumping Critique Please!

As most of you know I have back surgery in December and wasn't allowed to ride for about 4 months. So I haven't been jumping much at all, mostly cause I've been nervous! I don't want to hurt my back again! Well the other day I was riding Liberty and decided that it was time to jump something! Lib and I used to jump 2'9 courses (he can't go higher because of issues with him front right hoof) but these jumps are a start to get back in shape! So please tell me how you think we're doing! Its the first line I've jumped since last october! Thanks

Oh and it the 2nd videos he took a really looooong spot to the second jump!

I think you guys look good! How does it feel to be back over the jumps???? The only thing is that I would probably release a little more over the jump. I would also practice trotting over those little jumps, which will help the rushing.

PS I wish I had access to jumps like that!

Yeah that's my biggest problem over fences, I tend to have "chicken arms" lol

I think that he rushed to the fence because you were going so slow up to it. Try waking him up a little bit, not necessarily faster but more alert. Then he won't try to rush before the fence to get the energy he needs to get over it. And release more. Good job!
