I don't know too much about english riding, but you are sitting very forward and look a little tense.
Roll your shoulders back and put more weight in your heels/seat. I know english/jumping seats tend to lean you more forward, but it helps your balance. At least, that's how I was taught.
You look like you have piano hands, and it makes your elbows stick out. Try putting them at a forty five degree angle. It will help relay messages a lot clearer to your horse. At least you don't have the thumbs up hand position, which is good. : )
I didn't watch the videos, youtube is weird on my phone.
