Trim her feet. Put horse boots on her legs. Wear proper riding breeches. Wear a helmet. Do you need that strong a bit? She seems unhappy with it, you should try a gentler bit. Have a relaxed seat when you ride her, you seem to be tense and arching. If you have a relaxed seat and back it will help her back relax as well. You also seem to be pulling back too much with the reins on the flat and she is hollowed out. Also, shorten your stirrups ESPECIALLY when you are jumping. Double check her saddle fits with a professional. When you jump, you shouldn't be standing that far up her neck for that height of a jump. All I can think of right now.
