Pretty horse! Boy, what a trot! You look good to me, but there were a couple of things I noticed....
In picture #4, your elbows look a little straight..you're bracing with your lower arms. Trust me, I know all about bracing with the lower arms - I've done it SO much, but it's not to hard to correct.
Picture #10 - there's somethin' going on with your knee and the saddle - almost like your knee could be farther back, but it may just be me.
Your jumping position looks good - looking up and ahead, legs maybe should be just a little more underneath your middle. I noticed the reins are slack - I've just begun jumping recently myself, and so has my horse! I'm trying to keep the reins slack and my hind end out of the saddle so he doesn't get discouraged while we both learn.
There are a couple instances where you're trotting along with a long rein - perhaps if the reins were a smidge shorter, the horse might collect a little more.
You look like you know what you're doing to me, and always remember - you can't be perfect, but we always love to think we are!
Again, beautiful horse - never heard that about removing neck muscles, though...eegh.
