Thanks to all for your advices !
Lots of small collecting jumps. Pole work is huge. Always asking your horse to come back to you when you land from the jump, sometimes you have to ask them to quietly halt, with good warning and not roughly, a few strides before the jump and after as well. But make sure not to be too aggressive when halting or this will teach your horse not to jump
I would go lots of bounces and grids to slow the horse down and make them think about where their feet are
Grids, especially ones that you have to trot into!
Try canter poles
Grids and dogs legs
Hello Elliott ! Maybe you can try to change your snaffle to have more control on your horse ! πŸ™‚
