Tips on keeping a horse's impulsion while jumping?

Tips on keeping a horse's impulsion while jumping?
right before you jump don't pull on their mouth and don't jump ahead and also leg them on a little a couple
strides away from the jump
I find it really useful to warm up with and use transitions throughout your ride to eat the horse reactive to your legs, so then you can leave your leg on to the jump and they'll respond :)
just remember to squeeze:) if you have a crop it really helps to give them a little tap at the beginning of your ride to wake them up:))
