you need to have a much bigger release, you pulling on his mouth way to much. You seem to almost be depending on the reins for balence.

I'd grab mane, that way you can hold yourself and release...

Slide your hands up his neck about halfway and grab the mane in one hand and his crest in the other, that's what I do. XD Hope that helps. I haven't jumped bareback in ages but that's what I do when my pony takes a big leap.

Other than that you look awesome. How high do you jump?

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

I suggest practicing rein-less gymnastics in a controlled environment so you can practice your position without worrying about grabbing your horse in the mouth

Heels down, toes up. And just as everyone else has mentioned, you need to give a bigger release.

Considering that you are riding bareback, you did really amazing! The only suggestion I have is to release your horse more (it looked like you were holding him back a bit)- great job though!
