You are doing this right! Even though you schooled up to 2'3", you still kept it simple by doing a cross rails class to just expose him.
Even though the jumps are just another canter stride, really try to not sit down too soon, as you start to tug on his mouth on the landing side.
Practise doing a press release, instead of just pushing your hands forward. It looks much neater and tidier.
Love the fact that you aren't giving a "boob to mane" release, but just the right amount for the jump size.
