    I'm no pro but I find your back hollowed out, your core not engaged. To me you are also too far back in the saddle and your leg isn't stretched down dropping your heel.

    Hm. That kinda what I was thinking, I wasn't sure though. The saddle was too small for me, so that caused a lot of problems.

    However, I think my heel is down quite a bit.

    Well, looking again the heel itself is down but the leg not extended. May well be saddle size.

    You are too hollowed out in lower back. YOur seatbones are now pointing toward the horse's hind feet. They should point straight down.

    The saddle looks set on too far back. Rememver that the knee rolls extend in front of the tree points, so they will be up and somewhat over the shoulder, not behind it.

    I think that your hands are a little too high and your elbow looks glued to your sides. Think of your arms as an extension of the reins and let them follow the motion of the horse.

    You're sticking your butt out and hollowing your back. You're tipping forward, your legs are forward, your arms are very rigid, your hands are puppy pawed, and your shoulders are tense.

    I like that you're looking where you're going.

    I think I was trying to follow her mouth... and that led to all kinds of bad.

    I would first start by sitting back on your pockets more and dropping your hands about a foot. Your leg looks okay to me, but it will possibly change once your change your upperbody.

    Leg alignment is off (Heel should be under hip), hands to far up in the air, back too hollow, horse behind leg.
