Another important thing is to make sure that your stirrups are the correct length. Riding with stirrups too long can make you lost your base of support causing you to throw your body forward to catch up with your horse in the air. Jumping ahead is definitely my biggest jumping fault I have to come back and fix time and time again. Shortening my stirrups as I jumped made a big difference, working on what MIE said (particularly with gymnastics) made a bigger difference. Good luck! It's a terrible habit to correct isn't it?

I just recently (a few months ago) realized my stirrups have been super long, so I've been gradually shortening them. It's definitely helped; I used to jump even more ahead.
Ah, I know. I hate bad habits.

I do a number of odd things to keep myself from jumping ahead. When i'm on a horse that is fast to the jump naturally, I tend to learn at my jump because I can't find a rhythm so I sing nursery rhymes out loud quietly to myself. I can find a rhythm that way. I count 1,2,1,2,1,2 and I say out lout wait over and over and it keeps me from leaning at my jumps.
