By the way, this isn't my normal horse so I was sort of hesitant so I think I look like I'm sitting funny a bit.
    The only biggie I notice is that your reins are way too long because your elbows should not be that far behind your back. Your back appears that you have a good curvature which many riders lack naturally and this helps with looking straight up when sitting but need to relax lower back a little bit so you don't look so stiff and drop your shoulders so you elbows and arms are more relaxed.
