    Just keep it pretty low and maybe trot into it the first couple of times then speed up. Or x with vertical on top, but still low.
    Btw, what kind of horse is your jumper?

    Were not sure what he is but he seems to be thoroughbred x cob or something. His previous owner jumped him 1.10 so he's capable of jumping BIG lol

    Kinda. The x is UNDER the vertical with the one I was describing. I think it might be good to jump the one in the pic because it might help the horse to jump a little more arc like so he doesn't die over the big ones. Don't get to crazy with the jumps thou because if you have to much in front he may mis judge the jump which would be bad.

    This is probably not the advice you're looking for... but in your other posts you've mentioned

    1) you don't know how to half seat
    2) you have no real control at the canter
    2) your horse rushes jumps

    For someone to say that a position is perfect "except the heels" is kind of an oxymoron to me. Heels are such a BIG part of a correct position. It's not just about the heels but not having the heels right means that there are weaknesses in other places which affects your security and thus effectiveness to ride. It all goes together.

    Given everything I said above? My biggest advice is to take this time that you have while your trainer is taking off to perfect your basics and work on your foundation. My students starting learning their half seat at their FIRST lesson. At the walk, before they even go into a trot. Before they can canter they must 1) have the correct position and 2) be able to do a posting trot w/no stirrups for an entire lap. Before they can jump they have to be able to steer circles at the canter WITHOUT stirrups. Yes, it takes a long time but basics and foundation are the #1 most important part of riding. Once you have that down jumping will come easily.

    Please don't jump any bigger if you haven't got a good consistant downwards heel.
