You look good, so I'm going to be nitpicky--'cause ya asked.
The 2nd photo shows your heel up a lot more than in the photo with your approach. You are very well balanced, and your eyes are forward with a good, flat back and good release.
How about trying cavaletti without stirrups?

hmm I never thought of that! I've heard though that this horse doesn't like no stirrup work but i'm actually not going to be riding him much longer and switching so I could work on that after I switch. Thanks!

Your flat work looks really good. Over fences looks good too but try waiting a little more for the horse to come up to you instead of folding over so much.

Is this Dry Creek Equestrian center? I used to ride there until the western trainer left.

You've gotten so much better at your flatwork position :)
