Arrow Critique My Riding?? :)

I'm riding Chance. Theres two different days in this video. The first part was a few days ago and the second part was just yesterday. Please be harsh if you must. I want as much critique as I can get! Also, any ideas of what exercises you think would help us in the arena??

Thank you so much guys!!!

It's really hard to see due to the darkness. Next time be sure the videographer stands with the light to her/his back, not looking toward the light.

Honestly, I just cannot see enought to give you any thoughtful critique.

You might want to look through the video. The lighting is the worst in the beginning. Its alright towards the ending.

You don't look bad, at all. Your horse looks like a dandy.

I wonder how it would change your seat if you raised your stirrups one hole? You appear to be reaching for them at times.

You look really great!
Nice quiet hands/arms. You need to turn your toes in. I would try an relax from your knees down.
Sometimes your post looks a bit exaggerated (in the beginning of the vid esp.) and you are a tad heavy at the canter. Use some hip to move with it.
Keep up the great work!

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?
