You look pretty good if you are a hunter :) One thing that I am seeing, that is in fact a big thing, is that your leg is slipping back pretty dramatically. One thing that I have felt that works REALLY well is tying your stirrups to your girth. I just think it does wonders, and you can really FEEL the difference!! You look advanced enough to handle it, so I say go for it! :) You also need to work on really sinking your heels way way down. This will also be helped by tying your stirrups. And one last thing? Your toes are pointed out. Guess what will help with that ;)
I have these SAME problems you have ;) My trainer just has me tie my stirrups to my saddle every day, only taking days off when I just get too sore to bear it. And those days I simply don't ride, because it hurts.
If you are a jumper, you are not quite as effective as you could be. I would like to see just a teensy bit more contact through your reins, and sit up a bit more in your jump position, so that you are ready to take off into those tight turns once you land.
