Critiques Please! Lots of videos

I uploaded the videos from my last 4 shows on here, please critique my riding, but recognize that these shows span 3 months, so something wrong in the first video might have been corrected by the last video. Also, the most recent video is from 3 months ago. And please dont say obvious things, like when I am on the wrong lead, cause I can see that in the video too haha. And don't worry about the horses, they were just assigned I dont ride them regularly.

First Show: 2/22/09, Mogul, 326, Reserve Champion
First Flat: 2nd Place
Second Flat: 3rd Place
Jump: 1st Place

Second Show: 3/8/09, Becky, 359, Reserve Champion
First Flat: 2nd Place
Second Flat: 4th Place
Jump: 1st Place

Third Show: 3/22/09, Frisk, 201 (Frisk I had been riding for a few months before this show)
First Flat: 2nd Place
Second Flat: 2nd Place
Jump: 3rd Place

Fourth Show: 5/25/09, Boomer, then Becky, 336, Champion! (This was the Invitational that I got invited to for my points in the first 2 shows, and I got a little plaque for being Grand Champion!)
First Flat: 4th Place
Second Flat: 1st Place
Jump: 1st Place

Sorry there are so many videos, some of them aren't very long. Whatever critiques you could provide on my riding and position and such would be great and very appreciated! I'll try to post some more recent videos when I get some. :)

Anyone who can watch them all gets a gold medal haha. But honestly they aren't that long.

One thing I did notice is that I post rather aggressively. I've been working on that. :)

You are right that you do look a bit "trained and stiff". It is apparent that you have good form. You need to make it look easy and natural. That I cant help you with. But I did like what I watched of the vids.

I think it is because I am usually pretty stressed at shows, which I need to work on a lot. But I've been practicing relaxing my posting a lot, only rising a little and staying on the front of my saddle. I've also been working on the "string connected from your head to the ceiling" thing about sitting up straight haha.

Thanks!
