    Actually, the picture that you think is the worst shows your positioning the best. It shows that you have a nice supple line from your elbows to the bit, and it also shows that you have nice posture. The other pictures are a bit far, but the last one I think you have your reins a bit too tight and I think it looks like your pony has learned to lean onto the bridle, I could be wrong however. Let's see what the others think :)

    Oh, and um...a point about grooming, um, I would have someone teach you how to properly pull that pony's mane instead of just chopping it with scissors. It will lay flatter and look a lot neater and refined in the show ring. It kind of looks like someone hacked Honey with scissors, it's really obvious in picture 8.

    Thanks cinney's whinny! She's not my pony so I have no real control over the whole mane thing, she's a simple school horse haha thanks though
