yeh I can't really comment i've always ridden in the english style, but I do believe your horse may need a slow transition, as the saddle and the contact with your horses bit will feel very different to your horse.
Also have you ever done any english riding? Perhaps it may be not wise for you to hop straight on your horse if you're not used to it as it may unnerve him.
And I don't doubt you will be jumping very soon! It's incredibly fun as long as your horse enjoys it! Good luck and I don't doubt you'll have lots of fun!!
