It's a good start, but you're too far forward over the fence. For cross rails that size, you're upper body should not change. The only thing that should move are your arms forward for the release. Pick an object in the distance to focus on, (with soft eyes) and really concentrate on using your lower body, (knees mostly) to absorb the motion of the jump. Ideally when you jump, your upper body shouldn't change. It's the horse's jumping effort that closes your hip angle and creates the illusion that the rider is leaning forward.
