I agree with Cherie. Rushing jumps is not what makes a good jumper. In fact, hunters really specialize in style over jumps and jumpers have the ability and desire to cleanly jump higher and wider. The old Disney movie, "The Horse in the Grey Flannel Suit" showed a Jumper taking that wall, not a Hunter.
IMO, you should enter the hunter class and have a friend take a video of you both to watch and analyze later. Not saying you DON'T own a jumper. I would just like my horse to listen to me when taking a course. =D
