I don't see any take-off rails....
That was something I found was helpful learning to get striding, off the back and give with the hand co-ordination going...
A few ground poles will also slow him down and stop you rushing and popping into position as you are trying to do...
A slide of your hands, a true release, so the horse can use his neck you need to learn now...not when you are doing the heights you want...you don't want to bump the mouth and make the head carry so high as is done now..
I don't see a push off but a drag over the fence..you need to engage the motor, the hind end more...that is collecting the horse, riding in a frame not being all strung out just rushing..
Shorter stirrups is a must...
The horse should rise up to meet you not you throw your body ahead...you actually are off-balancing the horse. Your 2-point is not secure..you easily go from a preparation 2 point to true jumping position and release when secure astride.
Things any one who jumps has had to learn... balance, balance, balance, one with the horse.

I agree with Allison...you need more basics done so you are secure in what you ask, where and why.

You need to learn how to ask then work with the horse like poetry in motion...together as one.
To help not hinder...
A fence, a gymnastics line would do you so much good and teach your horse to push not drag himself over a fence.
How to approach, execute and finish to completion each fence,... then 2 fences, ... then a line, and then make a course would help you immensely.

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....
