Looking pretty good!
Just try to make it look more like a JUMP. Put your hands up his neck more and do what you would normally do. Hang on with your thighs and wrap your calfs around him. Nice!

Release. Your release is non-existent.

I agree you need a release. It looks like you are steadying yourself with the reins, which will pop your pony in the mouth with the bit and keep her from being able to or wanting to use herself properly over the jump. If you feel insecure when you bring your hands up, grab a handful of mane to help you balance instead. Other than that it isn't at all bad for bareback.

While jumping bareback is cool, you need to balance yourself, and you do this by putting your weight in your legs and not your hands. You are balancing yourself on the piece of metal in your horses mouth, and that's not cool. You need to balance yourself with your legs and release your horses mouth.

I believe you are trying to show the connection you have with your horse, and this is not it, this is your horse/pony coping with your fail.

Horses pissed expression and ears kind of says it all - your sitting on her mouth the poor thing. Same as above really.
