I agree with Spyder et al.
You are tensing which does translate to your horse - if you can learn to relax your pelvis and let it rotate back to "neutral" (you have it rotate backwards now, creating a hollow back) that will solve a lot of your problems.
It does look like she might be leaning on the bit ever so slightly, whereas the horse in the post that Spyder made was light in the forehand, which is what you want to accomplish.
There are some really knowledgable people on this forum that have offered some really great advice - your horse and yourself look like a great match, imagine what you could do once you get everything sorted out!
