I duno about your position, but your saddle looks really far forward in the jumping shot.
You look like you don't have quite enough weight down into the stirup/heel.

I think you need to bring your hands up in the first picture and bend you elbow more, and you look a little too stiff. Both pictures you need to put your heals down more. Other than that you look fine.

Your stirrup should sit on the ball of your foot. Not shoved almost all the way to the heel of your shoe. It is dangerous to have your foot shoved home in your stirrup, even with safety stirrups.

I agree, you saddle is too far forward. I find it strange that you say it slid on take off. I would think that take off would make most saddles slide back, not forward.
