My percheron/arab has his "floaty" moving moments- yet somehow gangley/goofy as well. I've seen him jump, at liberty, but he seems more like a foxhunting style horse, rather than a dressage type (high level anyway) but, he is the only percheron cross I'm familiar with. I definitely plan to do some basic dressage with him, just to work on suppleness and responsiveness, but I don't expect we will make the big leagues! :)

Absolutely I would. You see all sorts of cross breeds winning and competing against purebreds all the time! When choosing your dressage horse, conformation and temper for what you specifically want to do, is what matters. Unless you plan on entering breed specific shows(Qhs, Arabs etc), breed shouldn't matter.
I am quite fond of draft crosses. I only wish all breeds were put together or mixed with draft. They are such hardy and well minded, good tempered crosses.
Good luck with your search.
