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.
