W/T/C Riding Critique Please (video)

Hi! Here's some bareback clips from today. It's been really melty around here so the ring that I usually ride in is flooded, so I used the less appealing upper-pasture today. On a normal day I probably would have chosen to just not ride due to the ridiculous gusty winds, and extremely muddy pasture, but my pony is back from a 2-month break because of school and injury and this is only the 2nd time I've ridden him in two months!
So obviously we're rusty. But I got some decent clips that might be worth critting!
I'm noticing now that I'm way short on the reins most of the time; especially at the beginning! What do you see?
Raws (Crit?!) - YouTube

aaand here's the edited version just for fun :)

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it's the voice at the end of the day that says "I'll try again tomorrow"...

Do you think I look too big/long for him?

I think you are a great rider honestly. There was one part where you seemed to bounce a bit too much on his back, but you instantly corrected it and I didn't see it again.

I think you look just fine on him. I don't have much to contribute for bareback riding critiques. But you looke well balanced and well aligned. I do better with folks riding in a saddle. Don't know why.
