You've got quite a lot of VERY well deserved positive feedback here! :) As you should; you two are an amazing pair. He's a lovely little horse, and you ride him like a champ. Love it!
The only input I have is in your upper body. At times you can seem very rigid and stiff through your back, rolling your shoulders a bit and locking those elbows. Try to really stretch your back in a more relaxed way, thinking of sitting up and back but not forcing it too much.
Over a few crossrails I noticed that stiffness got you again. You looked almost mechanic over some jumps. Breathe girl! Lol. Really think about relaxing your arms a bit more and letting them move more softly.
Other than that, I think you look awesome! :) Even the critique I mentioned isn't that bad; most riders become a bit mechanic after lots and lots of practicing arena work. Just a few breathing exercises and you'll be rocking it out! :)
