Very cute. Great front end, clearly willing to jump from any spot, keeps a lovely steady pace to her fences.
My recommendation for working up is to set up a little one stride gymnastic, either with trot poles or a placement rail on the approach, and then crossrail to a nice squarish oxer. Raise the oxer 3" after she jumps through well twice at the lower height. When she nails this exercise at 3' twice in a row, and progressing to 3' quickly, add another fence 4 - 6 strides away, but definitely a related distance, at 2'9" - 3', also with a canter stride placement rail.
When she canters down to the single fence confidently and jumps in good form, you can start jumping lines at 3'. Once she's confident and happy jumping individual lines, and assuming the bigger fences don't interfere with her rebalancing in the turns, (A symptom of jumping too big too soon is that the horse lands on its forehand, runs into the corner and has trouble executing a clean change or reorganizing for the next line.) go ahead and string together some courses.
