Yeah, I can see from your photos that you are ahead of the horse and leaning too far forward, and your back is dipping downward, (what's the jumper term for that?) scooped ?
I heard anohter jumper say that what helped her was to be sitting more upright right before the horse took off for the jump.

Other folks can give better advice, but I just wanted to say that I see what they see. You aren't secure in that position should your horse prop or stumble.

You are over jumping. What I would like to know when you approch a jump are you sitting in your 3 point or 2 point. Please let us know and I think I can help. Also I notice you legs are slipping back. That is because you are over jumping and also I think your stirrups need to go up a couple more holes for jumping
