The still shots at the end are very revealing. You are pinching with your knee and it is causing you to lose your lower leg over the fences. You need to redistribute the leg contact from about 6" above the knee to 6" below it. Kinda like hugging the horse with your calves as you approach the fence. The knee pinching is also contributing to you jumping ahead. Your hips should not be in front of the pommel as they are in those pics. If this horse were to stop, or worse dirty stop, my guess is you would be over his head very quickly.
The good news is you find good distances, you're quiet up there and letting your horse do his job. Next step is to trust him a little bit more and don't throw yourself forward at the fence. You are already in two point on approach to the fence, so do less over it. Just let the horse jump up to you. I know, easier said than done, but you're not far off. I think once your fix the lower leg, the rest will fall into line.
