I find the crop perfect, any tighter on the left and you would not have given the horse any space to jump into. My only critique is for the rider, Shes in the air and appears to be looking down and to the right, Unless her next jump is to the right and down, .... Horse girls critique.. LOL Surprised this didn't score higher! It was a TOUGH challenge, sooo glad I didn't enter anything LOL....

You have perfectly captured this jump, there is movement, drama, intrest and a perfect controll of focus and depth.
Some may say the subject should have been more central, do not listen, the siting gives motion to the overall.
There is a little something just above the horses tail, an area I initially thought was blurred due to depth of field focus, but it may be camera or proccessing. It is the ONLY thing I found fault with in this image

Great stop of movement. Not one blurry or moved inch to see.

Revisit for a bump and a comment

Great capture! Lovely timing, and wonderful detail. Only suggestion is that a tighter crop on the left hand side would've drawn the eye to the rider more. Right now, all that left hand side is dead space that contributes very little to the image.
