I don't think you look too bad. I haven't done a jumping lesson in forever, so I'll let someone else go into detail, but what I notice is that your leg is slipping back a little, and you look like you're getting ahead of her in a couple of those as well.
On the first pony, you really need to bring your stirrups up a hole or two. You're really reaching for your irons, which has the domino affect of heels up, leg swung back and jumping head.
The pics from the second pony show that you're a pretty capable little rider. You are on the verge of jumping ahead though. There's a lot of air between your butt and the saddle. Remember crouch down, not jump up.
Otherwise you're upper body is consistent. Good long release, flat back, and eyes up. You and your ponies are spotlessly turned out as well.
As said above, you're reaching too much for your stirrup. Shorten them up a bit, and work on sinking into your heel, and set your leg right at the girth. Think of a center balance over the horses body.
Your upper body looks nice.
Both horses are really nice with their knees.
