Default Hopping drill - good on toe edge, crash on heel edge

I'm just learning to snowboard. There is a drill where you turn onto your toe edge and then bounce or do a small hop a couple of times and then turn on your heel edge and bounce or hop and then repeat down the hill. I am fine on my toe edge but as soon as I try the smallest bounce on my heel edge I fall over.

I'm wondering if my bindings are too far to one edge or the other. Or is it normal to be much better on toe edge? When I bounce on toe edge, I flex my ankles around to balance. Is there any way to balance better on heel edge?

Thanks!
