You are jumping ahead and hunching your shoulders. I think your lower leg might be a little too far back too.

May we see the older critique? I find it's helpful to see what has been improved so we can tell you if you are headed in the right direction and what still needs improvement

You are ahead of the motion. In the picture you've thrown your body forward, letting your leg slide back behind you, instead of letting the horse jump up to you. You are literally jumping out of the saddle. Ideally you want to be over the middle of the saddle, with your legs lined up with the girth right under you. It also looks like you might be looking down, although it might just be you blinking.

I use to do that all the time; my trainer would always yell at me to treat the jump like a speed bump.
