Those photos are IMO almost impossible to critique - they're very small and the first one is very dark, and they're both at a terrible critiquing angle. What I notice in the first pic is that your horse is throwing his legs to the right and twisting over the fence, and you have a TON more weight in your left stirrup that may be contributing to that. For the smaller fences you don't need to be quite so out of your seat and laid on his neck, you can be more in your tack.

you can critique bradley too but he looks good to me

He's jumping twisted in the first photo. Probably the result of not having a straight enough approach to the fence, compounded by your being off balance.

Again, nearly impossible to critique these photos.

From what I can see, you're laying on your horse's neck and your weight is too far forward, but I agree with JDI that better pictures (or the video you got the screenshots from) would help us give you a fairer critique. Cute horse, love those knees!

Your lower leg is sliding back and you are on his neck to much for the height of the fence you are jumping, pull yourself back a bit into the tack. Being so far up his neck will throw him off. Also I agree with JDI about the first picture, he is not straight and his legs are twisted to the right which I think is a result of a bad approach to the fence and I suspect a bit from you not being balanced right in the tack.

It is hard to tell from these pictures though as they are dark and a bad angle.
