I also see you interfearing as a rider. I don't know how to explain it, but I think you're not helping his movement. I see him moving short and choppy, he's not tracking up....at all.
Just as Spyder said, you really need to engage that back end and drive him up and into your contact. Right now, he has a "nice headset" and "looks pretty" but isn't using himself at all.
He needs to track up, he is short and choppy in his movement. And then he gets quick with his step, while instead, you as his rider needs to beable to contain that "energy" with your outside rein, so that he moves BIGGER instead of quicker.
Just as Spyder said - you need to balance him.
Your posture isn't helping him either. You need to open your chest up, and lift your heart. You need to close your elbow angle and pick your hands up much higher than they currently are.
Carry yourself, which will help your horse carry himself. Allow him to open up, move forward and under himself, and as Spyder said - get him balanced so he can use himself accordingly.
