Walk to the jumps. A good jumping horse can canter, trot and walk to a 3ft. fence and then jump it. This horse has a fear problem, and he'll be more under your control if you do this.

Then, school him on the flat until he is utterly exhausted and try again.

i do not agree with walking him up to it or running him into the ground.

be consistant. if he is getting wild spots are scaring himself i would set a placement pole or trot poles in front of the jumps. give him a strong half halt about 5-6 strides out then give him a loose rein and keep your leg on.

You know, this whole exercise sounds like it's gonna create a bad retraining problem for these horses. It isn't "Road to the Horse" stuff.

Is this pony green? Many horses over jump if they are new to jumping until they figure out where their feet are.
