Good horse, doing a bit of everything! :)

The only thing that stands out to me is your hands. Thumbs on to of the reins, fingers closed! Of course... the reason it stands out to me is it's something I have to work on too!

I agree with Deerly, however in the first conf. Pic of your horse he appears to be standing slightly under himself.
Not sure if it's just that particular photo though.

I can't really comment on comformation, because I don't really know :L. But with riding I would say just turn your toes in :) and maybe get him on the bridle for a better look :) xx
