developing bad habits

I am normally ok at show jumping but recently I started doing bigger jumps on hex and I am leaning forward a lot. I don't really know why, I would post pictures but I don't currently have any

Your lower leg doesn't sound like its stabilizing you, causing you to get a little left behind so you lean to compensate OR you're truly leaning instead of folding forward at the waist.

My unprofessional opinion.

I think more two point and frog position work will help.

By leaning do you mean jumping ahead or leaning to one side? Leaning forward around the couse?

If its jumping ahead it may pass once your used to the new height, you could be locking your leg and trying to jump with your horse to get over the jump and not bending at the hip. Doing 2 point around without stirrups will help out and gymnastics... its hard to say whats going on / what to say to help without pics or better description of whats going on.

Is it like in your avatar pic?

By gymnastics, she means doing bounces and grids. Not actual gymnastics.
