You can't see much from the last 2 but from the first 1 I got some stuff. You need to get your leg behind and under you more. Remember there should be a straight line from your shoulder to your elbow to your hip and then to your heel. Your hands look good except remember thumbs up. If you have to hold to crops upright in your hands, make sure they stay straight up at all times. it helps i promise. elbows in too though it may be the jacket making me think they're out. over all you look good, especially for bareback riding.

Don't look down.

It is really hard to tell a lot from the last two pictures, so please don't be upset with me if I'm wrong, it's really hard to see, but it looks like your heels aren't down enough. And you are a little rounded through the shoulder. Please post a couple more pictures if you have them, so we can see a little clearer, and then we can help you more.
