Thank you and yes that was me. I have been breeding and showing rabbits most of my life.

Ya know, I really liked your jumping and would be happy to see more. I'm too old and fat to jump anymore but did lots back in the day. Big Eq, hunters, jumpers, eventing. Until the ground got harder and too far away

I took a snapshot of your jump, and I would say to
-Drop your heels- They're a little blurry but it seems like you could drop them down a bit
-Keep your elbows to your side and I would say to give a bit more of a release
-Roll your shoulders back a bit
-And finally, keep your head and eyes up! You go where you look, and if you look at the ground then that's where you're going!!!

Overall, very good, I would also have to agree with the others that this jump is a major safety hazard, since if pony hit the rail it may not come loose. I would try two milk crates instead of just one...

The only thing I would recommend is keep a tighter rein, I had to watch the video like 10 times lol but I noticed a noticeable amount of slack given over the jump. Don't get me wrong, release is key, but with such a small jump, that much release isn't needed. There is a fine line with releases, whereas you can still release but maintain contact with the horses or in this case ponies mouth.
