Doubt it really matters for jumpers, but at the very beginning when you were trotting in, you were on the wrong diagonal.
It looks like you only had to correct his forward motion slightly with a half halt here and there. You did hold him a bit to a few fences, but it didn't interfere with anything, as the striding was all correct. You did loose some impulsion in the first round coming to the pink and purple line, but it ended up working in your favour.
Your horse doesnt bend very much around the turns, which could become problematic if you have a course that has tighter turns or any rollbacks.
The only thing I have to say about your position is that you should shorten your reins just a tiny bit, so that you arent having your hands in your stomach when you are pulling back.
Overall, it looked really nice though. Congrats on being back in the show ring!
