Do you have ideas of exercices to help me keep my horse straight when we approach the jumps ?

Don't cut your corners, keep your leg on and aim for the middle of the jump
No exercises but I struggle with the same thing! Just keep leg on and look forward no shifting weight to one side and no looking anywhere else but forward
Also maybe put poles on the side to keep your horse going straight
Try having longer approaches with guiding poles on the ground, and using X shaped jumps as they encourage the horse to take off from the middle. Also do a lot of gymnastics in a straight line formation
