The major thing I saw was in the photo where you are turning, you're dropping your inside shoulder, thus collapsing your core and shifting all your weight to the inside, which makes it much, MUCH more difficult for you horse to turn without falling in on her shoulder. You need to sit up evenly around the bends and simply turn your shoulder the direction you want to be going, but keeping your core strong and intact.
Hope that helps some and good luck with your new horse! :)
