For stock type horses, like QH, paint, and apps there poll is supossed to be approximately level with their withers. To be competitive, it has to be there. Obviously, it comes up a little when working over fences.

Hmmm interesting. But for English types it must be at like dressage level, above the vertical?

For other english "concentrations" other than dressage, the poll is usually a little bit higher than the wither, however not usually to the extent of the dressage "swan neck"

I think the 'swan neck' is a fashion. Not every dressage rider does it, although since it has become the in thing the judges do seem to award for it. Stupid if you ask me.

True, not every dressage rider does. However, in the higher levels, they encourage a higher, more "tucked in" headset.
I'm a dressage rider, obviously, and I prefer to see almost a hunt seat headset on younger, lower-level horses until they have the muscle to support a higher headset..

Anyways, back to the topic!

For what I do, usually the head set it a little higher than a nice hunter horse....but its eq, so mainly the rider is judged but you don want a pretty picture overall to leave a good impression

I'm sure someones already said this but you seem to stand on your toe - try sinking your heel down more and bringing your leg a titch forward - putting your stirrups down a hole may help.
