I need help releasing my hands when I jump. I'm always catching my pony in the mouth. It's also hard for me to hold mane when I half the steer after the jump. Please help!

Try using a stirrup leather around his neck as I quick easy hold. Maybe start practicing getting him to naturally go straight after the fence :)
try straightening your arms on landing, lock your elbows. hope this helps.
