Can you critique any of this?

I know it's not the best video, but is there anything you can say about my position??

(not the "before" clips, just the "after")

-I know I have a chair seat, i've got hip issues that keep me from opening the up...currently working on that.
-We have a gross half-lead change, i'm not quite sure what happened.
-Down the line, I was trying to get 7 strides down but didn't push him out soon enough so we got 7 and then a little tiny 8th stride
-To the final green fence, he was trying to stop and/or duck out to the left so that's why our approach was awkward - I was kicking his butt every stride and he was throwing a little fit. We got over though!

Also, sorry that my jacket makes me look all hunch backed.

Other then that, please critique?

You guys don't look too bad at all for your level! :]
I love your horse, very pretty.
I think you really do need to move him ALOT more forward, he's very poky.
When you are turning after a jump push your horse with your inside leg and lead lightly with your inside rein, don't pull him to the outside.
Appy's tend to refuse alot haha, I have no clue why. When he does just hit him, I noticed you didn't really punish him in the first part.
But other than that good job :]
