    If you can't get him to circle then there's a serious problem and I suggest going back and working on simple respect and obedience (once you rule out pain) and possibly getting a trainer on him to get him jumping SAFELY before you ride him.

    Is this a lesson horse?

    He's quite safe, he just runs through my aids. He's sort of a lesson horse. He's not in pain because he's quite happy when your riding him. Doesn't buck, rear, kick, bite, bolt....he just has zero respect for the bit over jumps. I have gotten him completly round on the flat and then I go and jump him through a course and he's a pain. It's not so much with one jump or through a gymnastics line but when doing a course.

    If he does B, he's not A, at least not for jumping. Either you or your trainer needs to find a way to get him more responsive before you continue jumping him.

    Just because he's not in pain on the flat doesn't mean he isn't in pain over fences. The action of jumping might be hurting him, so he pulls and rushes through it and I'm sorry but if you can't even circle him before a jump then no he is not safe. I've seen horses pull riders to big jumps they're not ready for, just because they were accidentally pointed in that direction. He needs these issues addressed before you stop him pulling to the fences.

    He could also not be in pain but just anxious

    Try just releasing and relaxing your reins :)

    They can only pull if you give them something to pull against!
    I agree, relax the contact on your reins and let him realise there is not going to be a pull.

    You can ditch the curb chain; it will have no effect on a non-leverage/snaffle bit.
