First off I would like you to slow your horse down a bit and get him/her listening to you ALOT more!
Maybe post some trotting pictures for us then I would like to take a look how much your horse is listening (makes it easier for me).
Your Body alignment is thrown Way off in the pictures, normally when I don't ride for a week I'm better then I am riding everyday but I guess everyone is different. Your leg has to come way back, you're hunching with your back sit up straight and hold your tummy muscles in, relaxed your butt, You have piano hands I was to see those thumbs on top!! Bring your shoulders back and your elbows a tad.
Maybe if you're jumping your horse do some basic dressage training before hand, asking your horse to slow down, collect or even bring its head down, but collection isn't important.
