jumping critique.. new pics and a video...

Critique my position as well as my pony's form.
FYI: I am starting jumping lessons soon with an instructor.

(Sorry for large pics. It won't let me make them smaller)

Also, here is a video. I don't know how to imbed it. To see me jumping, skip ahead to the following times:
:55,1:19, 1:36, 2:00, 2:30, 2:43, 3:00, 3:15
I realize I often get left behind, and sometimes catch him in the mouth when I do so. This most often happens when he jumps really early like in the last clip.
(Don't critique the other rider or make comments. We know what is wrong)

Holy crap! Not to get off-topic, but he looks sooo much like my Paint Clydesdale gelding, Sundance!!

You look like you're sitting down too early which is part of why you're catching him in the mouth. Maybe try some grids where you jump several bounces in a row. It will help you keep a soft but stable position over the fences instead of jumping ahead and sitting too soon. Little more release could be accomplished if you just folded at the hip a little more. It would send your arms a little more forward and help you follow his head better.
