In my opinion, doing lateral work- a benefit for the horse- in a half seat would be throwing away one of the most important aids, the full use of a rider's seat. Working without stirrups and in a half seat, is a benefit for the rider. All are good suggestions for exercises, but would be best practiced at different times.

Love the soft and quiet round, good job especially with the difficulties you've been having.

One thing I would like to point out that is at 1:15 you took that corner on the wrong lead. Make sure that you are on the correct lead before going around a corner, not only for the sake of being 'correct' but also to help keep your horse's balance and confidence while in the ring.

Keep up the good work!

You two seem like a great team! It's good to see that you fixed his rushing problem, in some local shows around here in jumpers you'll see people intentionally rushing their horses to jumps and that accomplishes nothing but bad habits. You looked a little tense (though that's already been mentioned). I love that you are in a half seat the entire time staying off of your horses back and not 'driving' him forward. Overall I think it was great.
