Question jumping

On all the riding school ponies I can jump 2 foot, but when ever I jump my friends ponyvp I can't sit to it. I always slip forward and drop the reins, how can I fix this and why is it?

Ride (posting trot) without stirrups to get stronger! That is from a weak lower leg! Also, if you are new to jumping or feel uneasy, ALWAY jump in a lesson, with a knowledgeable instructor who will put you on appropriate horses. The best way to develop bad habits is to ride a horse that is difficult/green or to ride without someone knowledgeable watching.
