Ok there is a few things, First you need to sit back or bring your shoulders back you are tipped a little too far forward. Second you need to close your fingers around the reins (I always forget this) and keep your thumbs pointing up don't let your wrists and hands turn towards each other. One other thing your elbow looks stiff. Try to keep it relaxed with a bend in it. If you keep the bend then you should be able to follow the movement of your horses head and he/she will relax and may even start to come through to the bit. Cute horse!

This is what I can see and im sorry if I affend you.

Relaxe you're shoulder's back and you're arms..
Remember heavy elbows and light hands!!
Thumbs on top, you have piano hands!!
Sorry but to me it looks as if you're sitting on you're horse not in you're horse.
Make sure you're stirrip stays at the ball of you're foot!! I can see the stirrip down further!!
Keep you're heals down, to do this you have to remember that you're heals go down not from you're foot but from you're KNEE!!..

Bring you're elbows back hands up!!..

This is at the walk as well.

Just try to remember those things. Rounded up you're horse isnt important. Correcting you're self is. =)
