You jumped ahead in the first and second photo. Sit and wait for your horse.
Yes, the reins were long and droopy in the first shot, but you did correct it. The 2nd and 3rd pic you have an OK release, but it still does need work. Your hands should move a little bit further up her neck. In the last pic it looks like you are actually resting your hands on your horses neck....so that makes me want to believe you arent quite solid in your seat. I like your upper body position in last pic the best....minus the tiny release. You arent as far over the pommel as you were in the others, your back is nice and flat, heels are down.
