Getting a cob back into jumping-help!

I've tried jumping a few times on my horse, and luckily, I have a good sense of humour she gets quite giddy (for her anyway) when I set out a little jump and canters confidently at it but a few strides out puts her head down and either stops infront of it or doesn't jump, just strides over it. I've tried a few times, I'm keeping my leg on but it doesn't make a difference. I will try to follow another horse but at the moment my friends having problams with her horse running out so I don't want her picking up bad habbits...

Now, today I found out she jumps really well on the lunge. She has also jumped propley under the saddle, how high I don't know but she's jumped about 3'6 on the lunge line, which I'm really supprised at!

So, how can I get her jumping like she used to? Would jumping on the lunge with a saddle on help? Any help is appreciated:)
