Sounds like fun!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

She is very gorgeous. I love her. I love how she jumps. She is such a beautiful mover. Now on to you. You are a good flat rider but over the jumps I think your position can improve a tad. Grip the saddle with your knees more and have a bigger two-point. I want you to get a little more on his neck. But, your a talented rider.

Do not grip more with your knees. You are doing that now and, as a result, your lower leg keeps slipping back. Let go with the knees and add grip with the inside of your upper calf. Not the back of you calf.

MORE on the horse's neck? No, she is low enough now. Lower than she really needs to be with this size of a jump.

This makes no sense!
