Yes, your leg slipped back. You need to ask yourself "Why did my leg slip back?" first of all, before you can correct your other mistakes.
Due to your lower leg not being stabalized, you jumped ahead. See how your crotch is over the pommel of your saddle? It shouldn't be there. It should be behind the pommel. See how your seat is way out of your tack? It should be much closer to your saddle - and your seat should be over the center of your saddle, pushed back towards the cantle.
As it is, all because of your lower leg, you created a domino effect that is very common in the Jumping World - unfunctional form.
You essentially threw all your bodies weight onto your horses shoulders, which made your horses job that much harder to get over the fence.
You need to correct your leg first. When you do that, then you can work on remaining behind your horse, instead of lurching ahead.
