Even more help needed :)

Sorry about this guys but i also have another problem.

This time on jumping

well as i spent winter schooling math i decided iit was best not to compete as it would just take us back to square one so i worked hard on the basics and did a little bit of jumping no more than  2ft to get his confidence back

yesterday i decided its time to bring him back up to his normal jumping height around 3ft3

We started at 2ft just getting him to listen to me and ask for him to add a stride and take one out ect

then we gradually built him to around 3ft or a little bigger  and he went mad racing to the jump and taking of as we landed he also didnt listen resulting to us getting to close so i nearly came of

so i asked once again and the same happend so we took the height back down to 2ft 6 and he was fine and again built him up to 3ft this time the approce was lovely and he jumped well again after i had no control

hes been checked so no pain but can anyone give me some help

 i was thinking gridwork along them lines or could it be just excitment as i asked him again and he was great came back under me after we jumped and waited for me to choose the way i was going

 instead of asking him to jump again i ended on a good note just incase he played up again

any help is appriceated

xx
