My horse keeps on clipping the jumps with his back legs, do you know any exercises that can help him pick his back feet up more?

Try raised ground poles
Have someone stand at the base of the jump with a bamboo stick. When he goes over get them to tap his legs before he hits the pole so he lifts more. If that doesn’t work after a few rides turn the back boots around so they are backwards. This creates the effect of when they take off the straps tighten causing the horse to snap his legs up. Hope these help
