This is something you should be doing with a trainer. You don't know how to jump and your horse doesn't either. It's not safe to just give it a go and hope for the best. Even if your horse does know how to jump, you don't. It's still not safe and very easy to develop dangerous habits.

I heavily agree with DancingArabians. Jumping is no walk in the park. Get a trainer, you'll need one. Until you can get one, I would be watching videos of jumpers, reading critiques of other people, and piecing together what you should look like. That way, when you do get a trainer, you'll have an idea of what s/he wants.
