Stirrups look too short, hips need tucked under (using your abs to do this helps keep your body elastic) and your heels need to come back under you.

The horse isn't carrying itself with any collection. I see a hollow back and short striding at least in the rear. With better self-carriage, the head will come down to a more natural position on it's own. Working on lots of quick transitions helps develop those muscles. As do things like quarter turn on the haunches, shoulder fore, etc.

Much better with the upper body! Nice flat back that shows no stress or tension! I love the alignment of your leg, but you ankle is totally locked.....heels are forced down and tight. The saddle also looks a wee bit small for you, as you are shoved against the cantle. But your alignment here looks great!

Yeah I've lengthened my stirrups since then and I've been using a new saddle (shown in the very top two pics but you can't see it very well) because the one pictured above started rubbing him. I agree, I think because my stirrups were too short it was forcing me to force my heels down and pushing back. Thanks again for the crits.

Also concerning Buddy... getting to start carrying himself better and collecting has been an ongoing process. He's getting better with it though!
