What types of jumping exercises will give my horse more confidence?

Lots and lots of flatwork, then move onto poles, make the poles into jumps, and then do lots of gridwork and related distances. Make sure to do a range of jumps such as oxers, sraights and crosses.
Start out with a pole in front of a tiny jump first, and then gradually make the jump larger. Use "X" shaped jumps by crossing over two poles.
i meant a pole in the ground one step away from the jump, after the horses are confident i also use that pole to teach them to jump closer or not to the fence
Thanx will try :) @prazeresmaria
we young horses i always jump in trot with a pole on the ground, so they learn to jump, when i put them jumping in canter i still use the pole on the ground till they are comfortable enough
