The first thing I noticed was that the bit seems really low in the horse's mouth, almost like he has to hold it up, instead of letting the bridle do its thing. Could be the horse has a shallow mouth, but it really looks very low.
Keep your back straight, and elbows in and at your sides - you want a straight line going from your elbow to your horse's mouth, right now you have a curved line from your shoulder to the mouth.
Your leg is nicely underneath you.
Make sure your hands aren't crossing over the horse's neck to get it to bend - try and open rein and more leg instead.
