Please critique my riding :)))

so please pick on me!
i have been riding for exactly 1 year.
i just like hearing different peoples opinions because i want to get better!

so this is me riding my favorite horse Paris. she is a bay thoroughbred that likes to bolt and she can be perfect one day and un-rideable the next. in the video i know i am pitched forward too far when cantering but i am working on it. you have to half seat on her because she will bolt if you don't.
i am riding the BAY thoroughbred

this is some of me riding a bay arabian gelding named Spider.
the video might not work

here i am riding another day thoroughbred mare names Playtime.

and these are from shows where i was showing a paint pony named April.

one thing i noticed going through my pictures is that i need to put my toe in.

I live in a house but my home is in the stable.

Why did you post this 3 times? lol. I'll be back later to critique.

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

It's really good, especially as you've only been riding one year! Must be a natural, just try not to over exagerate it and keep your bum in the saddle :)

You've only been riding a year?
Youre eq o/f is really good...goodness it took me awhile!

All I can see is that you need to press into your heel a little more and squeeze with your calf. The base support of your jump is generally most important.

Looking good!

BTW that bay horse is WAY cute :)
