Equitation Crit. wanted!

So I've been riding for seven and a half years. First three hunter jumpers, second three Eventing, and last year and a half I left my trainer, and I've been riding on my own.

AAAAAAAND look what happened. XD So, I'm going to start up lessons again to fix... this. But, before I do, I decided that I want some crit. I am NOT going to say "please be nice", because that's not what I want. I want you to be mean. I want you to tell me exactly what you see, and how I can fix it. I know this isn't much to judge off of, but I'll film more soon.
I would appreciate it if you not only put things I'm doing wrong, but ways I can fix it(IE excersizes I can do or change)
The pictures:
(Front Rider)





Sorry that some of the videos are badly edited or random fluff most of the time. I'll post a certain time frame in the videos to tell you where the riding is.



(This one, watch from 1:05 and on)

I'm just going to critique this picture. The angle is bad so it might not be accurate.
I'll start at the top. LOOK UP! Concentrating on keeping your chin up. I've heard of riders sticking tape on the inside of the visor part of the helmet to remind them to look up. I think I read that on another forum so I'm not sure if that would work. Lol
Your shoulders are sluggish. Sit up and roll your shoulders back.
Keep your arms at your sides. Thumbs up! One way that helped me keep my arms at my sides, thumbs up, and shoulders back was sticking a crop between your arms behind your back. Not the safest thing but it works! Lol
Your leg looks pretty good. It almost looks like your pushing on/off the stirrups, unless it's just the angle. Remember to push your heels down, without bracing against the stirrups; if that makes sense. Sorry, not that good at explaining. Lol Think about sinking all your wait into both of your heels evenly. Toes up, heels down!

Sorry, not the best critique!

Ok In the jumping pic you are jumping ahead. And also your pony is jumping very deep! It may be because of your ponies take off that your position is like it is lol. Not the best angle to crit but that's what I picked up on!

On another note, I LOVE YOUR POOOOONY!!!!!!! HE CAN COME AND BE FRIENDS WITH MY MARE TESS! LOL

Eq-Thank you for the Critique! Yeah, I've been screamed at by Hanna (Girl in back in first picture) "PIANO FINGERS! GET THOSE THUMBS UP" numerous times. XD I tend to get them a bit better now, as all of these were taken a year ago, but It's still fairly annoying when they tilt sideways. XD

Ugh, my eyes! STUPID EYES. I'm always looking down on this mare in perticular. This is Princess, and I was looking to see if her head was lowering. Normally she looks like an arab, with her head sticking straight up.

I'l try that! On an easy horse, of course. XD I need to start arching and bringing my shoulders back of course... I actually am making a list of things to do when I go ride in Microsoft Office. *^^*

Pinto- Yeah, I tend to do that on him. XD He actually looks a bit bigger in most pictures, but this jump is only six inches off of his whither height, and now he IS jumping his wither height. Haha, so it took him a while to get used to. But he's my little Panda-pie. *huggles* Haha, Tess is gorgeous! I have a thing for paints and pintos *kinda obvious with the ponies I ride*

Haha, Horsey-Spray-Paint during the show. XD It was suppost to be for darkening a bay or grey horse's legs and making the pattern even... Hanna and I kinda abused it. XD

The spray paint on their legs came off six months later when they shedded. XD
