An update, I took him schooling around a course yesterday and this was the result.

This combination he jumped really nice and as I felt comfortable I went with him and was relaxed even though it was a bit bigger.

This one was the first time I went over it and as you can see I didn't move forwards with my hands as much and also I wasn't able to sit to it very well. This happens quite a lot and I feel like I come out of the saddle far too much. I don't know how to stop this?

Overall I had a very good session bar a stop at my very first fence a cross pole ��

Looks like a nice venue and set of jumps. I'm not much help with tips as I'm fairly novicey. I have realised I need to sort out my hands too, I need to give more over a fence. I do grab the neck strap and try to soften over the fence, but it's def early days for me.
