    You do need to work on a stronger base position, I.e. Your seat needs to be a little steadier, legs a little stonger, and your arms and hands need to be quieter so when you get left behind you don't pop your horse in the mouth. In the second video your horse kind of popped you out of the saddle after the jump, and you lost your balance, so you need to work on a lot of balance exercises so you can stay in a nice two-point regardless of what your horse is doing underneath of you.
    Overall, you two are a great pair and with a bit of work you'll look stunning! Cappy is really cute!

    You've got the basics :)
    I would say keep working with a trainer and videoing yourself cause then you can watch your progression ... also like said above, your whole leg and seat need to be a little stronger ... maybe some half chaps or chaps would help and I think you fall back a little to early after the jump ...
    Cute horse and great job tho! :)
