    You pinch with your knees a little bit causing your lower leg to swing back. The picture where you are halfway over the jump your hands are where they are supposed to be, but you hold yourself back. You have admirable heels on the flat, but you lose them over the jumps.You could lower yourself a bit more also. Also your stirrup iron should be placed on the ball of your foot, and untwist your reins.

    I do feel my heels so be down maybe a little bit more but I can't do the whole broken ankle look. I am working on no iron work and sinking my weight into them. Thank you though

    You sure look good to me. Your shoulder/hip/heel alignment is almost perfect in that first pic. Your butt is just enough out of the saddle to show that you're allowing your horse to do the jumping. It looks fantastic to me. I'd kill for your position. Your heels are so far down, it looks like you're double jointed.

    The only thing I see of concern is that last pic on the flat. Your hands are low and the line from elbow to bit is very broken. You're nowhere near that position that some riders take to wiggle the horse's head down, but just wanted to call your attention to it.

    MyBoyPuck- Thanks so much. I have been working hard.
    Thank you about the last picture.

    You seem to sit back in the saddle a lot. You need to learn to get up out of the saddle more. You may be getting a tad bit left behind, from the looks of the second picture. I think your stirrups could come up a hole... But that may just because I prefer shorter stirrups myself ;D Put more weight in your heels, too.
    Your horse looks very nice and willing. :)
