I would first check the saddle. Then any pain/spinal issues. Then, I would learn to keep those lower legs forward when you land so that it feels like you "land on your feet" when landing after a jump. That way, you are less likely to tilt forward with your upper body when you land and less likely to land on his back too early on landing.
Then, it just may be a horse who puts what I call "joy bucks" while jumping. I have had horses who enjoy it so much it's like a football player "spiking the ball" (rider). They are just so proud of themselves. I have had big time jumpers do this during a course....just because!
