Do you believe in magic video
your horse looks abit like she is over jumping, but has definitally approved from the first clip.
you look like you are abit AHEAD of your horse,but i could be wrong.
gratz to you for looking up !

that is all i really have seen so far. :) GOod job !

hey ! i like your position a lot, your leg seems really tight ! one thing you could improve on would be giving a bit more release & keeping your hands down on his neck not floating above them

The biggest thing that pops into my head is that your horse was on the wrong lead most of the first video, and you didn't make him switch.

You're a very good little rider. Are you self taught? do you take lessons? you're very good and you're horse is very athletic and seems to have a really nice attitude. Good for you for being a helmet wearer as well.

The only suggestion I have is the same one that was posted above. Try figuring your leads out because it's true your horse was cantering on the wrong lead in both videos.

Good work otherwise :D

You guys look good together. He seems to enjoy his job and looks like he's got the talent to go higher. I think you have very nice form and unless you're into doing hunter classes I wouldn't worry about that lead too much. It becomes automatic for you after a while and most horses will get to the point of switching once they know which way you're going after you've worked with them enough (and if they aren't being stubborn).

First let me start out that you have a beautiful horse. :) But you have to have a release. I think your pulling on your horses mouth just a little. Also you need to get those correct leads.! But other than that you two are VERY cute together.
