Overall, you look like you could be an awesome rider if you just fixed a few things.
-I think your upper body would look tons better if you sat straighter and had your shoulders back. Sit up tall and instead of "forcing" your shoulders back, think about sticking your boobs out. Sometimes saying "shoulders back" tends to make people stiff through their upper body.
-Hands. Yucky! You have good bend in your elbows but are totally destroying the line by breaking your wrists. Bring them back up to normal and rotate your hands so your thumbs are on top. When you're wrists are broken like you're doing, you are only influencing the reins with a dropping, jerking action from your hands. If there is a straight line from your elbows to bit, you can do a smoother action of pulling straight back.
-Seat looks good.
-Pull your leg back underneath you so that when you look down, you can not see your toes.
Fix these and you will be dynamite. Your horse is looking great! :)
