How did she do in the second jump class?

I see a horse that is capable and a rider that isn't there yet for several reasons. I think it would be of benefit for you both to go back to the basics and work on that. I'd also suggest a different saddle that better balances you. I'd work on not riding from the knee. I'd work on hands. I'd work on effective use of a whip. I'd ditch the spurs. I'd work on softening her back up again. I didn't see a spook as much as I saw a response to how she was asked to canter.

That said you both have potential. You both need work. It may be that you need work apart before coming back together.
