    Looks good! If you are riding in western shows, (I can't tell in the pics) but make sure you aren't posting, no posting in western shows! I'm still getting used to it!

    I can't really see that much from the photo, but I do think you need to have your upper body back more. I assume your into dressage and jumping from your saddle? Your heels could possibly go down a bit more, but don't force them. I think you are looking pretty good otherwise. =]

    You kind of sit the same way I have a tendency to sit, so I'll just repeat what my instructor says: Sit centered on your seat bones, both lower back and belly pushed outward, shoulders up and back. Whenever I hollow my lower back, my pelvis tips forward and my leg shifts further back, and I appear "stiff". If you can manage sitting without rolling forward, you'll have an easier time getting that shoulder, elbow, heel line.
