Your hands are a little low, breaking the line from elbow to bit. Your shoulders could stand to be more open. Right now they are a little hunched. I should know. I'm the queen of rounded shoulders. Other than that, looks nice.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.

Hard to see from one tiny photo ;) but I would agree with the hands. Bring them up a tad higher as you should have a straight line from the bit to your elbow. Take up the reins a little if needed as they are slacking. Helps to get the horse listening to you and on the bit - at the moment he is bringing his head and nose up above the bit. Gentle squeezes with your alternate hands will help.

Apart from that I can't see an awful lot. But looking good :)
