I suppose they could, but why? Peruvians have never been bred to be used as jumpers, hunters or eventers. Peruvians are bred to be the best and smoothest *riding* horse in the world. Jumping is really not their forte.
You didn't say how much jumping or what kind of jumping you want to do. An occasional small jump on a trail ride or trail course is no big deal, and of course they can do that. But if you're thinking of hunter/jumper type competitions you probably would be better off looking for a horse bred for that discipline.
What kind of jumping do you want a Peruvian to do?
