Your stirrups are too long. Look at the way your legs seem to straighten out over some of the fences, 'jet skiing' my coach calls it. You want to have your knees bent, absorbing your motion. You need to work on your eye for distances, you're consistently finding awkward spots to your jumps and getting left behind, thus falling harder on your horses back or catching him in the mouth, or jumping ahead of the motion.
I'd like to see you finding and maintaining a nice, steady rhythm rather than pushing for the 'move up', at this point it looks a bit awkward / rushed and until you're finding your distances you're just pushing him and throwing him at the fence. Something tells me also that you need to work on using your core strength / developing a bit more, you either seem to be sitting back too early or being 'stuck' too far forward for an extra stride or so, depending on the distance you get.
As a side note, your hands are a little 'loud' when posting, I'd work on quieting them a little.
