Question Jumping Critique on Arab

I've taken a couple jumping lessons recently and I know, I still have A LOT of room for improvement! But I don't plan of really competing in jumping, but I just wanted to learn and how to properly do it so I've been taking lessons


Here is me and my 20 year old Arabian. I do have a few videos if you guys ask for them. He isn't a HUGE fan of jumping, but he does ok.

Sorry for poor quality! They were off my phone.

The pictures are really too dark to give a fair critique. If you can post any other pictures or video that you have that would be great.

No critique needed. looks like a normal ok jump at that level. You have your butt nicely out, and going with the flow. Looking balanced in the video. Try to sit up EVER so slightly just do you dont get a habit of over jumping, but all in all you look great :)

Puts me to shame! I suck at learning to jump. Two-point is hard.

Keep it up!

My friend and I think that it might help to grab mane and 2-point too and after the fence so you stay with his rhythm a little better. Overall you guys look very nice :) Cute Arab!
