The only thing I notice is that your heels should be down a little more.
I don't think your hands are down too too long...maybe a bit, but not much...I personally like my hands down a little lower, but that's just me.

Looking good though...your horse is soo pretty

You have good posture in the first two pictures and your leg seems to be in the right place. In the 4th pic you seem to be holding your horse back, while asking him to go and you are posting with your hands. Apply pressure with both legs (inner thighs especially) and sink your butt into the seat. Soften your hands up a bit. But good work!!

Ya, I have noticed that, it was a pic from last year and I have been working on it and now I post with my legs , not with my horses mouth. And now, I always have my heals down!

Yeah. I agree-your heels should be down a little bit more. As for the hands; my instructors are always telling me to lift me hands up, but I guess it's your own opinion or whatever :P

And, I too-love your horse!!!

But, I also want to say-as long as your hands are off your horse's neck-it should be good.
