    The main thing I see is you're completely throwing off your balance by looking at his feet. Look up and over the jump where you're going to be going after you land. That should make things easier for him and you.

    Also pretty much what you said, heals down etc. In all of those pictures your shoulders are too hunched. Straighten your back, shoulders back. While you're warming up do a few shoulder rotations. Shrug your shoulders up to your ears and roll them back. That's how your position should be over the jump.

    How long has he been jumping?
    He seems a bit scared and unfamiliar about jumping?
    If it was my horse I'd take the jumps down, low and get him to learn to jump but steady. It doesn't look like he understands when he needs to take off, and if he should jump or trot over them. Sorry if he's been jumping for a while, but he looks like a beginner jumper.

    He's cute, and you guys look good together. :)

    I have the jumps low, he clears them easily, so then I keep taking him over them. He gets piggy because he is getting bored and its like they are too easy for him. The jumps arn't usually that high they are usually create hight or tyre hight. Although he doesn't jump tyre hight. He has been jumping with me for 2 months but I believe he learn't to jump with his old owners. I will get some newer pics of us jumping.

    Yeah, a crate and a tire isn't too big, but the last jump that's a pole propped up on those sawing-stool-like-things looks a bit bit for him, since he knocked it, and refused it (in the pics). He also looks a bit confused at how to jump on the double tire jumps. :)

    Yeah for him stilll learning the sawing sool was a bit high. Just take it slow and easy on him and once he clears one of the low jumps take it up 2 or 3 in.

    PLEASE use a ground pole! It is REALLY hard for inexperienced jumpers to judge their distance without one, you are making it very hard for him to do what you want. He may be clearing jumps, but that is the LAST consideration when jumping, really. You want him balanced, calm, forward, straight and attentive. He can't be all these things if he is confused, worried, or not getting a lot of direction/help from his rider. Basically you are tipping forward before the jump, and have no contact. This means you have lost your base of support. I'm suprised you didn't fly over his head when he stopped, you must have been going very steady. You need to SIT UP before the jump and maintain a good contact. This will support him and allow you to help him out by manipulating his stride to ensure he finds the CORRECT take-off spot. Jumping small jumps like that you don't need to crouch over his neck. Really all you need is a light 3 point/very slight 2 point and just enough rein to allow him to stretch out. Throwing your rein away before the jump will undermine his confidence, as you are leaving everything up to him and giving him no help. As I said above, you need to sit up, maintain a contact, and ride him forward and solidly into a jump with a ground pole.
