Here is a recent video of me riding my horse, it was taken this monday.

One of my dressage trainers(not the one in the video) had me lower my stirrups down a hole because I tend to pinch with my leg since my upper leg has trouble fitting in a lot of saddles, but I feel like they are too long, I constantly am trying to "find the stirrups" I don't know if its my pinching habit of if they are too long, when I ride I take my leg away from the saddle from my hip to lengthen my leg and "de-pinch" but they still feel a bit long in the trot and canter, and I end of getting flat footed... what do you guys think?

Critique?

I can see more of the posting hands now w/ the video :) I think if you decrease the movement in your posting, it will help a ton with the hands :)

Hm, like all the others said, over all, you have a good position, but I think you just need heels down, and look up. I agree that even non dressage riders should work on that.
