For smaller jumps, you do not need as much allowance for takeoff and landing as you would a 5'+ grand prix type fence.
For a 2'3-6ish jump, I would just use one stride for takeoff/landing.
Now, hopefully I get this right, as striding is still fairly new for me.
For a one stride, you need 1+4+1=6
For a two stride, you would need 1+4+4+1=10 steps.
A bounce, I am not sure of, but obviously it has to be fairly close.
BUT if you take big (or small) steps, then you have to take that into account as well.
