I do think you look very good, there's a couple of things I could think of for you to work on:
1. I think you need to keep a better contact with cowboy in the reins. Do you normally ride western? Depending on the horse (some have lighter or softer contacts) it should feel like you have a bag of shopping in each hand. When he's cantering, move your hands with his head movements to maintain that contact, then give a release over the fences. It might help to stop him wiggling between the fences.
2. Maybe start working up to cantering your courses, that way you can work out strides, and I don't know about you, but I find it far more comfortable to jump fences at the canter!
Hope this helped :)
To ride or not to ride? ... What a stupid question!!
