First of all the grass!!! You should not have long green grass like that!! It's just wrong! (I'm jealous, my paddocks are very brown and almost bare at present)

The main thing I see is you are pivoting on your knee. You need to hold more with your calf which will help to keep your heel down more and leg more forward.
Other than that, it doesn't look too bad (except the grass of course)

^^^ What makin tracks said...Keep your lower leg to the stirrup. It will help you keep your position so you don't end up pushing yourself ahead of your horse.

That's just not right. If your friend has NEVER jumped before, you DO NOT put her over that high of a jump. You have to start off gradually. What if she had fallen and gotten hurt? You have no idea how much liability issues you would be involved in. Also, sit back. Push down, you are completely out of the saddle. Put the weight in your stirrups and put your shoulders back, look up, work on that two point.

Safety should come first.

Beyond that, the first picture, the rider needs to put their weight in their heels. And push their heels down. If that's the first jump ever, its pretty good.

For the second picture, hands should not be on the side of the horse's neck. The need to be above the mane at the lower part of the main crest of the neck. The rider also seems to have a turtle back forming.

Legs. Work on them. Toes up, heels down, don't allow them to slide back.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.
