Critique my seat :]

I know my major problem is my shoulders. They're insanely weak, and I deal with them on and off the horse because of these annoying beasts called boobs. So... I know my shoulders are majorly slumped..

Aside from that, how does the rest of my position look?

At the trot, I was sitting more forward because we were going over poles, and cross rails. At the canter, though, I was sitting back, in a dressage seat because Annie's still really green with her new found carriage, and I have to really drive her with my seat to get her forward, bending, and her shoulder lifted, and her head correct... so.. rip me apart :]

ALSO. Critique Annies movement if you can :]
We've been working A LOT with her canter.. and I'm very excited that she's doing so well, and I'd love to hear what you have to say. And I could always use some constructive criticism. X]
Side note: We're training first level dressage, and are about to start schooling heavy on 18" so we can start hunters! =D

It is more difficult to get replies on the weekends. A lot of people are out and about. Also the angles of those photos are very hard to critique(hard to see). If you can get better side views you might get more replies :)
