Jumping crooked, what do see and how can I fix it?

So these pictures are from a few weeks ago. It was great lesson and huge break through. These are the not so great pictures that wont be going on my fb

I am leaning alot in these shots. I didnt even know or beilve my trainer (this is why I love getting photos or vieos of my lessons or just rides)

I saw these and was so I have had a few lessons since. Out of the saddle now for a couple months now from a recent non horse related injury but this is the time im spending to work through my brain to not do this.

What do you see?
How can I work on not leaning?
Any suggestions, advice or anything helps

I would say work on not overjumping such small fences (specifically the crossrail). Over the verticals, and any jump really, work on stretching you legs down. Keeping equal weight in each stirrup and remaining aware of your bad habit over the fence will help keep you more centered. By overjumping, you are not keeping your body balanced over the horse and are making it harder to keep centered.
