You still need to straighten your back a little and bring your shoulders back.
The 3rd pic is the best IMO. :)

I agree pic #3 is your best. Shoulders are a bit rolled in but otherwise your form is good.

Crazy - I think she's wearing trakky pants? I like the colour though!

I like picture #4 the best, your back looks the best and you are looking up and over your horses ears. In #3 it looks like you are a little behind your horse to me.

I think you should get out of the saddle more in the 2pt. Also try to keep ur heels and your chest up. Out of the jump it looks like your in her face and in her way a little bit. Try to stay off her neck too. Open your body up a little bit more. But good job lol
