You look very nice on this horse the only things I basically see is that you need to move your foot up a little in the stirup and you need to move your hand a teeny bit, I mean a teeny bit forward but you look really nice otherwise

You need to bring your leg back under your hip, and same as the person said above about your hand it should be about two inches infront and level with your horn. You horse also isnt looking very engaged from behind or rounded through the poll, really work on getting him to drop his head when you put leg on. To teach a horse this you can either school him two handed and supple him into the bridle, so play with his mouth a little left, right, left... or one handed at the halt hold your rein hand striaght up putting contact on the bit, and as soon as he gives to the pressure release and pet him... then you can work it in the walk, jog, and lope, and once he knows to drop his head to that then you add the legs with the hand and release both when he gives. Its all about the release =) hope that helps a little
