Well, I must say you look really good! But watch your toes when going over the jumps, they look like they are pointed outwards a little too far. I think you look great!

Your horse is a cutie. :)
Your position looks lovely. I really like what you have going in your canter picture, even angles and balanced over your feet. My only critique would be to carry that feeling into your jumping. Next time you go through the cavaletti's think of scooting your bum back in the saddle and keep it there. You will feel more bend at your hips, but your leg stays the same. When the horse jumps up into the air he fills the space between you and him so that you don't need to throw your upper body at him. See how your seat is rising over the pommel? You still want your seat over the middle of the saddle, with your seat closer to the saddle. What you are doing is just getting ahead of him. That position in your canter picture is all you need for the lower jumps. So just practice keeping your seat back with more hip angle and you'll be looking great. If you think you got a feel for it, post another photo! :)
