from what I can see your leg position looks like the best part of you :) just heels down a tad more :)

toes in-legs back and heels down-looks like your up on your pelvis??is that the right way to say that? Try for a deeper seat
You look very good considering he isnt trained completely. He is adorable

I think your legs look fine, except as already mentioned heels down a bit more. I couldn't tell you if you need your legs closer. I'm more of a western rider.

Looks like he's coming along nicely

Thanks. I've been told not to force my heels down to much because it makes me tense my legs and apparently I had no leg on my horse lol. It made a huge difference to the way my mare was working as soon as I let my heel relax, my whole leg relaxed and suddenly I could feel her moveing and was able to work with her! I have horrible weak legs :(

I think you should raise your stirrups a bit. :) That might help with your leg position.

Success comes a [bit] at a time.
