The way I like to look at this is your horse is an overachiever, and I don't like to punish them for the effort. I also don't want to be pulling on them so much. I let them jump then turn around and go back through again and again until the horse decides walking is way easier than jumping. After a few times of doing this and they won't be jumping anymore. I find this to be the best way to let the horse figure it out so it's his idea then you're not getting into an argument with them.
Eta: If you don't think you can ride the jumps this can be done from the ground by sending the horse back and forth on a line.
