I think what JDI is saying is that until he becomes more responsive to more subtle cues, you should hold back on the high fences you're jumping. As it stands right now, he has little support moving over the high fences - why not work on your aids on the flat and over small crossrails until he has mastered moving off a subtle cue? That way, when you get the the higher fences, you're more able to support him with your legs, instead of having to cue him that way.
Just another thing flat work will help with - you can become more balanced in your seat and more stable through your leg, while at the time, teaching him to work off those seat and subtle leg cues. It's a win-win!
