Critique my lesson

I'm not even sure if I ride like this anymore,
But this is me in college. I wanted to get back into riding so I rode at this very beginner place. Only one lesson horse could jump and this was the height.

Soon I'll get some videos of me on my horse once we get going I'd like to be critique since I wont have an instructor telling me what to fix anymore.

But for now this is my last riding video I have, this is about 2 or more years ago.

This is that last jumping picture I have from about a month ago on my friends horse - this is my first time jumping since those little jumps in that video!

With a little work you should be great! But in the picture, you need to tighten up your reins more, and really sink into your heels over the jumps. But other then that you look pretty good! =)

I am only going to critique the picture :)
First off you are WAYYY over jumping and if the horse were to stop you would go flying off. Your heel is up causing your leg to slide back. This means that your base of support is gone and has caused you to be launched on to the neck. The horse is probably a little freaked out with a leg back by his bum. Since you have lost your base your upper body has fallen apart. You are much to far ahead of the motion. You need to let the horse push you out of the saddle - you can't jump for your horse! Practice, practice, practice on the flat before you continue to jump. If you ask MIEventer she will explain why your base is so important.
