I'm no jumping expert, but I think I can shed a little light on your positioning.
I think you may want to see a trainer. But like you said you'll be getting one soon. However, to me, it doesn't look like your giving your horse a good release. In the 3rd picture it also looks like your legs are way far back and up.
I would say you would need (just based off the 1st pic) heels down, shoulders back, head a little more up, elbows in, arms a little more forward, etc.
That's just what I saw but I wouldn't take it for granted. I'd like to see what others say. Also please correct me if I'm wrong.
