To me... Your horse is developing to the rider. The rider in the video not only does not have a release but actually looks like they are pulling back. I don't know what ring they have the bit on (looks like yours is on the second one), but an elevator bit can be very severe, and a rather rough jolt if you don't release. If I were you I would be working this horse through bounces (with a different rider) to encourage the horse to use it's neck and jump round. I don't know how stable you are over fences, but if this were my horse (and basing of the little evidence I have here) I would rather you riding the horse. Your have a more giving hand and though you're tipping forward a bit you are certainly not jumping ahead as much or such a severity.

Well, I think you do better than the other girl. I was wondering, maybe she doesn't want to stretch forward with that running martingale on. I HATE those things. (sorry, I think I might be kind of grumpy tonight). If you need a martingale for jumping , would not a standing martinale be better? Only tight enough to keep you from being cracked in the nose? I despise running martingales. They are spawn of the devil! (ok I am PMSing)

Lol. Now I know its not just me tinyliny. Have been grumpy for like three days now! You jump her much better than the other girl. She may have more confidence than you do but you are way better. And the picture with you jumping her is when she had her other saddle. You definitely give her her head more. It almost seemed like the other rider was holding her head back nearly pulling it back. This is probably throwing her off and probably not making her happy. I don't know much about jumping but I would say let her head out more, and possibly get a lighter bit for jumping at least.
