If your issue is as bad as this and you fell off seven times at one show - you need to stop jumping. Clearly, there are major faults with your position and you are becoming VERY unbalanced.
I'd also suggest getting a trainer and chances are your flat-work could do with some work as well, if your legs can get this far back. I looked at your photos of you jumping your friends horse 3'6ft - your leg isn't secure there either.
Sorry, if I sound harsh. But with proper, disciplined training - your position will be much nicer and both you and your horse will be having a lot more fun.
Our horses reflect us, what we do in the saddle - our hands, our legs, our upper body, etc. So, once your position is nicer you will also find your horse moves and jumps much nicer as well.
