    It definitely looks like a kimberwick to me, I have one myself that is very similar. But in order for a kimberwick to work properly, you have to have the chain on there.

    I agree with you needing to put more weight in your outside stirrup while turning. You are putting your weight to the inside, which will make the horse drop it's shoulder and become unbalanced, often times speeding up. Keeping your weight to the outside will help.

    Also watch your legs. At times they start to get in front of you a bit. Also work on deepening your heels and warapping your legs around the horse. It's hard to really see from still photos, but it looks like you are just perched on the horse, not really RIDING the horse. (I could be mistaken without the video, though).

    Overall your position looks nice, like you have a good foundation to go from. Best of luck to you.

    Definitely a type of Kimberwicke bit...

    I think everyone covered things pretty well.

    I would try to work on getting Belle to reach down and into contact for the bit, as especially in the canter, she hollows out, and can't reach forward under her with her hind end like she could if she were driving from behind.

    You should have a straight line from your shoulder, hip and heal at all times.
    You stress your back. It should be relaxed and flat not inverted.
    Your thumbs should always be on top.
    You're sitting too far back in the saddle - especially when you're cantering.
    You need more contact when you're trotting - urge from your seat and your legs and soft with ur hands but a contact.

    Also you are putting your reins (the excess) on the wrong side of the horses neck.
    Should be on the outside..not the inside.

    That is your average kimberwicke bit. I have a couple identical to it. Ithink everyones pretty much go the critiques covered. When you are riding make sure that you could draw a straight line from your ear-shoulder-hip-heel. This will prevent your chair seat. I noticed that you go over your pommel when you are posting. When you are posting don't push up and forward. Just roll your hips forward and keep the rest of your body close to where it is when your are not posting.
