If you are just doing Hunter Under Saddle, your size shouldn't effect you too much. However, if you were to do a Hunter Eq class, you might get penalized, since it is you that is judged.
You are definitely not to big for him.
Buttt...watch how much you are cranking his head in. He is getting behind the verticle, and looks to be avoiding the bit. For a hunter class you want long and low. You are almost there in picture #4, but you want looser reins...to the point of almost being slack, but with a light contact.
(And just because it is a pet peeve of mine, it is Hunters OR Jumpers. Not Hunter Jumpers. It is Hunter Over Fences. A Hunter and a Jumper have two completely different ways of going, and type of jumps. Not to mention the fact that hunters are judged and jumpers are timed.)
It is impossible for a man to learn what he thinks he already knows. --Epictetus
