Same! Only like 3 or 4 saddles that are untouched, with saddle pads, and matching bridles... (;

He actually kind of "gains" energy through a course and goes faster and faster and faster

What do you do when you've jumped the course? Is there something he's looking forward to? It sounds like he's hurrying to get this done with so he can ????. Perhaps do the course in reverse order and keep changing it up. Another thing, how softly do you regain your seat after a jump?

He just loves jumping that much. No matter how I jump a course he does the same thing. I usually regain my seat really easily

Are saddle fit or chiropractic issues ruled out? I wonder if part of the rushing is anticipating pain somewhere? Will he do the same thing if lunged over them?

He has had chiropractic work done, and has a fitting saddle. His anticipation of pain is probably worried about me lacking a release, or when my friend would fly in the air when he would jump since she doesnt know how. Lunging he has no problem, but free jumping he rushes them

You need to go back to the basics with your horse and your trainer to teach him to respond to your aids, not a bigger bit.
