I had the same issue with my tb mare, and found halting before the jump just made her "explode" at the base of the jump. Circling just worked her up and built anticipation. I've had success with tons of grid work.
- trot poles into a bounce
- ground pole into a one stride into a bounce
- two stride, one stride, bounce
- one stride into a two stride into a one stride
...just to give you a few you could try! I'd still suggest halting after the jump though if he lands out of control, just not before.
