It's also called 'chase me charlie'. :)
Your back needs to be straighter and your heels need to go down!!!!
You might also be pinching with your knees, which causes your legs to swing back.
Release more! Especially over such a high fence.

Keep your back straight, you both are hunching over. Heels down so you aren't pinching and give the horse more rein, you could be catching him in the mouth on the landing if your reins are that tight.

I always called it 'bump it up'. I didn't know it had a real name.

Help me horse forum! You're my only hope!

Your heals and your back look terrible. You need to release a LOT more as well!

Why are you jumping so high if you're that unstable in the tack? You're treating it like jumping is a game, sure I'm all for having some fun, but think of your horse's well being also. Go back to some simple cross rails and get yourself steady and secure in the tack, those pictures actually frighten me a bit.

Sorry, I have to agree.

You really do need to solidify your position before you look at jumping this high again. One misstep and you both would be eating dirt pretty darn quick.
Crossrails and reinless riding are going to be your best friends. No-stirrup riding as well. Lots of flatting, trot poles, raised poles, and some crossrails.
The horse doesn't look confident either, I would be very concerned with you overfacing him.

Also: Are you riding in sneakers? Those shoes don't look to have much of a heel which is pretty scary when it comes to jumping IMO
