When jumping my Clyde he pulls the reins out of my hands while rushing toward the jumps and over them. Is there anyway to pull his head in without a harsher bit?

Use half halts to try to collect him, but make sure to give him releases! If you just pull, hell fight it and push on the bit.
half half through the turn maybe!
