It seems to me that it is not a "better" horse that you need, but a knowledgeable trainer.
Jumping is not really about jumping high, but about precision, controlling distance and the horse's stride. Of course, the horse's scope and ability comes in at some point, but every pony can jump 3 feet.
There are many things that seem "boring", as in not adrenaline-rush inducing, but that are really helpful and necessary to progress. Even with cavaletti or poles, or on the flat, you can practice to shorten and lengthen strides, control, angles, estimate distances properly etc. Chances are this will be more helpful to you and your horse than just jumping high.
