The ideal situation would be a dressage trainer who is able to customize their training based on the horse. Dressage is meant to benefit the horse and rider by providing balance, regardless of breed. A good dressage trainer should be able to recognize the limitations (and benefits) of a given horse's conformation and act accordingly. Also, dressage is wonderful base training so you could easily let him do dressage for a while and then switch to something else. In the given pictures he looks quite hollow and tense, if a good dressage trainer worked with him he would learn how to carry himself better and in turn become more relaxed and stable under saddle.
