i don't love the pony in the first video. i would school that pony on the flat for a few more months before i had people jumping around on it. While it looks to be cute and sporty enough, there's no steering and is much less polite than i can appreciate.
That being said... i like how you rode the swedish. I had a nasty crash through a big swedish oxer a few years back, and can't seem to let it go... so i have an unusual amount of admiration for folks that can ride up to the base of a big swedish like no big deal. haha! I'd only really say that maybe your release is a bit more exaggerated than is necessary. Although, I'm of the belief that i'd rather have a rider give too much than a rider that snags the horse in the mouth. Nice job. :)

You look great over all!! The only things that I can say is that you sometimes look down over the jump, in the first video over the vertical the second time is when i noticed it although it might have been your helmet blocking your eyes.

In the second video you can probably raise your stirrups a hole or so when going over jumps that high. Which by the way is really impressive.
