Jumping my Western horse English?

I have a 21-yr old paso fino gelding, great shape for his age, who I've always ridden Western. I'm really interested in jumping but have never jumped myself, though I do know a fair bit about English riding. My mom has an English saddle from the TB racehorse mare we had, and I was considering using the English saddle on Arthur (my paso fino), but the Western bridle since we don't have our English bridles anymore. Would that be okay? I mean, I obviously wouldn't jump him high.....just like logs on the ground. After all, he's 21 years old. Would this be okay you think?

I think you could probably do it. I don't know much about western tack but it seems like you could just choke up on the reins a little and make it work. I would work flat in the English saddle a couple times before you try to jump to make sure your really solid in it since you might get some refusals the first time you try jumping.

english, jumping, western
