New to the forum, new to riding. Thoughts?

Hey everyone, I've only recently started riding (this spring), so I know I'm going to have a lot to improve on. I started my lessons in a western saddle, then bareback and have only ridden English once so I don't have any photos of that, but here goes nothing!

Sorry this one's not very good quality, I don't know what happened to the original. I'm expecting to hear about my hands in this one >.<

Another horrible quality one, from my mom's cell phone. I hope you can make it out okay!

From what little how little you've been riding your doing really well :)
Now bare with me, I've never really had a proper go at commenting on someones riding, plus the picture is western and where im from, western riding is like a foreign language

The main thing I pointed out was in the second picture, your feet seem to point out really far, but its not to much to worry about going by your other picturs.
Again, going by the English riding, the top picture your arms look really good but I wouldnt have said so about the other two photos.
In all three, I also noticed you have a very slight chair seat. But its not bad enough to take note of and im sure itll come with more saddle time.

Again, your position is actually really quite amazing considering how little you've been riding, and im sure you'd probably be much better of getting the advice from your instructor or someone else on here with a little more experience on pointing and correcting position problems

Thanks a lot! Every little bit helps, be it from my instructor or from you guys on here. I've started trying with an English saddle, hopefully that will help me fix my chair seat. I'll definitely keep an eye on my hands and toes then :)
