Dodgy photos for critique

They are pretty shocking quality but its the best I have. These are just from the past couple of days. He's only been in regular work for two weeks, same goes for my riding.
We're getting ready for a show on the 4-5 March. So rip us to shreads! Ill try to get a video over the next week or so.
Alot of them are quite the same, but I figured why not post em all.

Do you think I need to drop my stirrups a hole? They feel alright when im riding, but when I look at the pics I think they look a tad short..

Im leaning foward in alot, need to work on that.

Rise trot. I've been told that im rising too high? Yes, no? I don't think so, when I compare what I used to be like! But let me know. Its not the best angle to really see I know.

I was riding in a stock saddle in these.

Afterwards. Nom nom nom

The stirrups seem to look short but it's really hard to tell from the pictures. Your horse sure has a lovely stride in his trot!

That's a nice trot! 4th pic is the best. If you compare it to the first pic, you'll see in pic 1 that your shoulders are rounded and your elbows are not resting at your sides. In that 4th pic, it's all there. Your shoulders are a little rounded, but not nearly as much as in pic 1. Your elbows are resting gently at your sides. Your horse is tracking up and using himself very well. Looks great.

For your upper body, just think about opening your shoulders. Overdo it at first by trying to touch your shouldblades together and then letting them slip back to neutral. Rotating your shoulders back and shoulder shrugs work well too as well as keep everything relaxed. Get those shoulders open and it will improve your position a lot. Beautiful horse. What breed is he?
