I'm not going to reiterate what's already been said about your leg, but the other thing I noticed is that you appear to be falling behind the arc of your horse's jump - ie., getting left behind. I had the same problem, and my trainer would ALWAYS yell at me for having my butt touch the saddle before my horse had finished the jump! I recommend working on lines of four or five jumps, increasing in height, really focusing on where you are in relation to your horse. The line makes it easy, because it essentially "jumps itself," and you can ride in in a solid two-point and focus on maintaining it. That helped me a lot. Incidentally, I also have a problem with my leg slipping back - it could well be that they're correlated, and if you fix one, you'll fix the other!
You and your horse look really nice otherwise; just make those two adjustments and you'll be kicking some butt! :)
