You guys look good :)
It seems to me as if you are standing up morso than folding your hips, which is why you feel like your coming out of the saddle too much. See how your hovering over the pommel rather than your seat? Pinching with your knees causes your leg to slip back, and your upper body to go forward. Also, tuck your elbows in and try not to brace on the horses neck with your hands. By folding at your hip rather than standing in the stirrups that will encourage your leg to stay closer to the girth, also I would personally shorten the stirrups a hole or two, but that's probably optional with lower jumps. Grid exercises and stirrupless exercises are also helpful for leg position. Toes in, and heels down more ;) Beautiful horse!
E v e r y horse is good for something. You dont throw a whole life away just cause he's banged up a little...
