VIDEO:Back in the saddle and want a critique!

Hi! I'm new here! I just started riding again after taking a few years off (not by choice)
I have two videos of me riding "Star" a 22 yo quarter horse. She doesn't look or act like she's 22 though! I'd just like to know what I need to work on. I feel like my legs are too far forward but I also have western spurs on so that might have been part of my problem but I could only find one of my English spurs... Thanks!

Hopefully my video's work... first time trying this...

The second video is better quality but it was my first time riding again. The first video was from last night and the lighting is horrible.

Can't really see too much in the video, other than it looks like you are enjoying your ride.

you seem really comfortable and at ease in the saddle and do sit solidly and quietly. I think you have a good seat overall. The only thing I noticed , more in the older than the more recent video , was the hand coming out of position and makeing weak contact. A very common flaw and one that just takes a rebuilding of the good habit. The horse seems very peppey.
