I would try setting up the cavaletti 3 strides apart. Make sure your horse does it in 3! I would also recommend putting something different on it (like a towel, etc) to make him look at it and be more catious. Make him think you know all the tricks in the book, by this I mean make him go straight after the jumps, right up to the fence. Obviously stop at the fence. This will help him listen to you. I also agree with the bounce, or a line of bounces, because it will force him to rock back on his haunches and slow down.
