Cute video and good seat with just a bareback pad! One thing I noticed more before you were asking her to jump was she's not really using her hind end...more just dragging it along. Once you put her over a fence or two she seemed to perk up and have the impulsion she needed to maintain the canter though. Is she strong at the canter? Maybe try giving her her head when you first start into the canter and bring in your reins as you go around the arena...might give her more incentive to keep her impulsion if you're off her mouth a little at the start. Once you had her over a fence or two her canter was beautiful though!
