You look pretty good on the top half of your body, but you need to bring your leg forward. I have the same problem as you sometimes no matter what I do my legs will fly back, and sometimes they won't move at all. A good exercise that can help your legs is to jump without stirrups. It causes you to think more about your legs.

It is not just a horse,
It is the one thing that keeps me from being just a girl

I know whatcha mean about the legs not staying forward. It helps to do TONS of flatwork with and without stirrups to anchor your legs in place. Once your leg is solid on the flat, move on to smaller fences with and without stirrups, and keep moving up.

I love the third picture, that pony looks like he's attacking the jump
