Smile Teaching my arab to jump... HELP

I've decided I would like to teach my arab, Freddy, how to jump. He walk, trots, canters, and goes over trot over and lope over pole like a dream and I'd like to be able to jump for fun. I've taken him over 18" cross rails and he likes it but he is really bad at it. Does anyone have any tips on teaching him to jump without looking like a deer?????

I'm trying to teach mine, too-I used to have cavellettis, poles & some jumps, but over the years, since DH wouldn't help w/maintenance, they have all "gone away". So I use what's on the trail-some days he gets the idea, but since he was at a theraputic riding center, he was taught to only slowly step over objects one leg at a time.. so it's an uphill battle, & he does sometimes stumble along-I don't think he pays attention to the terrain. My other horse loves to jump, so they each have their "own ways". & at 20, I'm not demanding he do it.
