Do you have advice about teaching your horse to get proper distances ? My part board takes every fence ling, and never gets a good spot. I tried ground poles and it does nothing

Try bounces. Stay out of her face when working so she can figure out where she needs to put her feet
try putting a few poles farther away so it's like a bounce to the fence to keep him or her collected to the fence u till it's ready to take off over the jump. that helps a lot.
Sometimes it's just best to let them figure it out on their own. Eventually they will learn how to back themselves up and will be able to save you if you chip at a jump. Try doing some grid work as well.
