Collpasing through the hips - help

I have recently started my 5 yo on some bigger jumps like 90cm-1m. He is fairly balanced on the flat and very a very ballsy jumper, there isn't much he won't jump. But my problem is that, going over these bigger jumps, he has a massive powerful jump and I am collapsing through the hips as we start to come down. I sometimes fall onto his neck but mostly just become unbalanced, mid-jump and more so when we land. Which isn't helping either of us.

Is there anything I can do to stop this from happening or will I just have to practise more? Apart from this, we are both going really well and I am very proud of his progress.

How strong are your core (tummy) muscles. I'm fimding there's a direct relation to core strength and ability to hold one's position over fences.
