Question Training a pony to jump?

Hey everybody :) for a few months now I've been training my pony to jump (he's just turned 5) and we are going well. My pony is happy to trot over any jump 45cms and under. But, he will only canter over a jump 35cms and under. Which is quite annoying! My pony I reckon has a crush on my friends horse, so I asked her to canter over a jump and my pony would follow. So, we were cantering towards the jump and then my pony hopped to the side and avoided the jump! It was only about 30cms high. But, that was our first attempt. Our second attempt he kinda cantered up to it, did this mini slide thing and then jumped it. I have noticed he's just not picking up his feet! I'm not sure how to train a horse to jump. I would really love some tips! Thanks!

I would guess that he is confused and doesnt know what to do with his feet. Can he trot and canter over poles ? Do you ever use a placement pole in front of the jump to teach him where to put his feet ?
