While I do like a deep heel, I think you may be shoving your heel down rather than letting it drop down, which is causing you to shove your leg forward; instead of shoving your heel down, think of your legs as wet towels handing over the horse's sides, with your heels being the lowest point for the water to drop out.
Your shoulder is coming ahead of the motion a bit, bring your shoulders back a tinch do you have a line from shoulder-hip-heel.
Inside shoulder up, chest open. Hands closed on reins, thumbs on top, (you have puppy paws) elbows bent and at your sides.
You are a lovely young rider, with just a few things to change :) keep it up!
