Two-Point Critique

Besides the obvious, (that my toes are WAY to far out, instead of forward), any critiques on my two-point?

You're a bit too far forward and as a result, you're broken too far over the neck, causing your elbows to drop too much, and you've adopted "puppy dog paw" hands. Your heels are down and you're looking up, which is good! You're giving a lot of release to the horse, but you should try to follow the horse more, instead of "jumping for him".

Your horse's jumping is absolutely terrific! Anyways, the main flaws I see here is the overdone release and the getting ahead of his motion. If you don't release quite so much, a good four inches or so, then you'll find it easier to jump with him and stretch your upper body up instead of down onto his neck. Good luck! Your leg has stayed in place and appears to be quite solid other than the turned out toes. Grids can help with position errors :)
