Also, does my saddle look a little on the small side?
Interesting that you should say that, about the saddle, becuase I thought that your knee was a bit high on the flap and thought that lowering your stirrup one notch might help. In the posting you look like you come out of the saddle more than necessary. It helps to quiet the hand if you post a bit more with the pelvis in a forward action, so you are kind of posting "through" your hands, as if they are a steady gate that you mentall move your pelvis through (or up to). That way you are not posting so much off the knee.
So, in answer to your saddle question, I think it might be a bit small. You look tall, so maybe you need a larger seat size. Also, keeping your thumbs more up will be default put your elbows more back twoard your side. Think of your thumb knuckle as literally pointing a laser line to the bit of the horse.
Forgive me if my points are off as I am not a hunter rider so I might be way off in my judgement of what is normal.
