]What an adorable horse you have! I would love to see you give her a little more rein in your release because you look like you are holding her back. Also your leg has slid back in a few photos. And I also saw in a few photos you seem to be sitting over the jump. Ohh and I saw that you commented on your release so that's good that you know about it.

Just going to say that I am glad you didnt post pictures that you don't own, but in clicking on all the links was super annoying...

Your 2-point isn't very consistent. You are jumping ahead a fair bit or getting left behind. In a few pics, you are centered over the saddle and have a nice 2-point. Barely enough release or not enough release. Your leg does stay in place for the most part though.

When you are warming up and riding in a lesson, go around the outside track in your two point. Go over trot poles in your two point. Pretend when you are cantering to go in a two point for a stride...but don't snap up and down.

For your release, you arent getting your hands far enough up your horses neck. It looks like for the most part you are just going to the martingale strap across the withers/neck. Be about 4 more inches in front of that. Tie a ribbon in your horses main if you have to, and aim for that every time you go over a jump.

You are either jumping ahead or getting left behind, in all the pictures. Really practice your 2-point, at the walk trot and canter, this will help you get a better feel for your horse. Also you aren't giving enough. Resting your knuckles on the horse's neck isnt a bad thing, and you should do it, especially since you are losing your balance and having trouble staying with the horse. Try grabbing some mane, that is a lot better than using the reins as balance. It looks like you are just planting your hands down and not moving them with the horse at all. Practice moving your arms with the horses mouth, if you do that your horse will round more over the jump, and not be so flat like on jump #8.

Also practicing your 2-point, and without stirrups will help with your lower leg from slipping back..try raising your stirrups a half a hole, it may also help with your leg position.
