Any Critique on me with this 158? (Pic Added)
This is me riding a horse of a friend of mine, a 158 Dutch Warmblood in the 1.30m speed round at Millstreet in Ireland. Royal Regency (Spiffy as he's known at home!) and myself have jumped all over the country, and this was our most recent win. Is there any critique on this jump?:) By the way, we were booting it around the course for best time, so take it into consideration haha!;)

Just send that pic into the George Morris Practical Horseman jumping clinic. You look fantastic. Very few of us on this forum are jumping at your level and can accurately weigh in with critique.

:)..as was said it looks good. What I see though are your hands floating above the horse's neck; in a standard crest release you would have your hands on the crest, for an open release the line from elbow to mouth would be straight. Your lower leg is just a hair back from optimum position but everything else looks textbook :)
Here is an article on the crest release: Glenshee Equestrian Centre: The Crest Release... and how it Ruined American Jumping

Ah thank you guys so much:) I will defenitley take all of that into consideration! I love getting outside advice, it's always a great help to me. I'm actually writing this beside Spiffy's stable, he says hi too! ,;acsopwp--e0ekif823;.n! ... I lifted the laptop over to Spiffy there and he nudged the keyboard! I guess that's hi in proper Spiffy Language!xD
You lost your leg a little bit. You can see it in your avatar pic as well. Heels down and a flexed ankle will help to keep your leg underneath you. That is really my only critique here. I am a jumper rider myself... and i ride a horse that has a huge jump, so i have a tendency to lose my leg as well. I don't think it matters much however; as you can clearly tell by the keen expression on your horses' face, that he's got no concern with where you are. He's just motoring around doing his job. Lovely riding!

Let go with that knee and wrap your lower leg a bit more. This will encourage you to drop more weight into your lower leg. Soften that knee and ankle.
The loose hand above the crest, unless you were about to make a sharp turn (not evidenced by where you are looking) runs the risk of a good snatch in the mouth. Lower that right hand just a bit.
other than that, it looks like a good aggressive ride. Pretty is as pretty does.....

Wow. I don't know anything about show jumping, but you must be REALLY good if they are using your pictures as stock pics and stealing them for FB groups.
