I usually read through everyone elses comments to not repost anything but somethings stick better when you've heard them 101 times!

1: Get those toes up and forward! They're lazer beams pointing at the horses ears!!
2: Look up over the jump
3: You're leaning over the jumps. This isn't only bad balance for you, but also your horses balance.
4: Amazing jumper for being trained by you but you need to seriously set your horse up for the jump. She has an amazing tuck but is over jumping most of the jumps. She's taking off too soon. Try to slow her strides down so she takes off at the right spot.
5: Beautiful horse! Amazing rider! Great pictures!!
:) Hope I helped a little!

Okay. Just a couple things. A lot of it has pretty much been covered.
Your leg seems to slide back quite a bit. You need to keep your heels down and your leg more forward when your jumping. Work on strengthening your leg some. That should help.
Your leaning quite a bit over almost all the jumps. Its important to stay above your horses neck or you can majorly throw off his balance.
He is jumping really flat. You want him to use his neck and be round. It should make a big difference for him if you give him a bigger release. His head is really restricted and he is not able to use it, which is probably why he is jumping so flat.
His spots are also a bit iffy in some of these pics. He seems to jump rather long.
Is that a hack class you are in or some kind of dressagey class?
Overall the two of you look nice. He seems to have a lot of scope. You have a pretty solid position. I like him a lot. He's very cute.
