Horse "chipped" the fence (came too close to the jump, so had to "pop" it) Try and stay a little closer to your tack and let your elbows release.
Hard to tell from this angle, but have less of an angle between your hips and torso, and sink a little bit further into your tack, i.e. bend forward more so you're not out of your tack that much. Might want to bring your heel back underneath you a little. Again, the release, but you knew that already.
Goodness you have long legs! I could be completely wrong, but maybe shortening your stirrups in the second pic? Anyways, you look good other than that.
