I actually really like her as a jumper. What I noticed- though it was hard to see with the video (wish I could put it into slow-mo) is that before the jump you have a nice upper body and stay back, letting her do the work, but after the jump you seem to fall forward a little bit. I don't think you should do any more single fences with her, and instead work on a couple different things to get your horse using her hind end and slowing rather than rushing the fences. Lots of trot poles, sitting way deep in the saddle to get her picking up her feet and working off her bum and then lots of combinations, bounces and one strides, etc. and in between the jumps sit deep in the saddle (like over the poles) so she stops rushing- and only once she's got that do you get her jumping single fences. My newest gelding ran flat and long to every fence we set up, rushing every single fence in the arena and with exercises like that after a month of lessons / working with him he was well balanced and taking first places at his first show.
I agree with LoveTheSaddlebreds, maybe talk to your trainer about exercises like that and if not find a trainer who will focus on working with your pony. I think she'd make an excellent jumper with a bit of work! And even if you still end up selling her then you've gained the experience / you'll have an easier time selling.
