See the position of your upper body in the last picture you posted? Now pretend that your horse had jumped....you would be pretty much in perfect position for a jump! Of course you would have to move your hands up just a teeny bit, but don't reach for his ears. Small movements.
The thing about giving too much rein over the jump, is that you come in with contact, throw it away, then snatch it back up after the fence. If you had a roll back to the next fence, you would have a hard time making the turn.
Bring your leg forward, and your shoulders back. Pick up your hands, close your fingers.
