Even enlarged I cannot see anything, poor picture with even worse focus.

Younger eyes might define something bit I cannot!

The only thing I can see is that it looks like you have a chair seat and maybe hunched shoulders? Wear a helmet!!

It doesn't look like an english saddle but your knees seem quite bent. Are your stirrups long enough? Or are you holding on with your calves? Straighten out. Breathe.

To ride a horse is to ride the sky.

Well...my humble opinion...your legs are too far forward, your not balanced or centered, you should have shoulder, hip, heel in alignment, your hands are up and not lower, stirrups are too high, lower them a notch or two. Also, do you normally ride in what looks like tennis shoes? If so, get a good riding shoe/boot as they will offer you better grip and protection, also and this is the old woman in me, dress more appropriately.
