    Going from little jumps to bigger jumps is really not that big of a deal, I've found that just treating a fence that is say 1m like it is only 50cm makes it a lot easier. With my horse keeping the same rhythm and staying relaxed is key so if he senses that I'm getting nervous or tense heading to a jump he'll tense up and take the fence from a bad distance, over jump, or just ignore my hand and leg and run. Going to a bigger jump you may need a little more impulsion from your horse so he can find the correct distance and doesn't chip the fence but there is definitely a difference between having more impulsion and just speeding up. I always make sure to give my horse a good release over the fence too.
