Question What do you all think?

What do you all think about my position? These are the best pictures I have from my last lesson. Some of them look funny because they are stills, and also, I look funny in some of them and I have no clue why. Lol

First, shorten your stirrups. They're too long. Sit back, and don't lean on his neck so much. Sink into your seat, lift your hands. Over the jump, keep your leg anchored near your girth and don't let your heel come up. I think in a few pictures your stirrup has slid back too far on your foot, so watch out for that. Basically, keep yourself on by supporting yourself with your legs and not your hands. Hope this helps :)
