Any horse who wants to do it, can do it. There is no "best breed" for the sport.
If you are just getting into Jumping, I suggest you find a horse who is a "been there done that" mount, so that you can focus on you and your abilities, and have fun, all the while gaining confidence and skills. So that when you are ready to move onto a new mount, you are fully capeable of taking on that challange.
X2 on the agree. I got paints and I jump them 3 foot hunter. But goin on what MIE said they have almost perfect confo. They all out of national champ sires so confo and personality is a biggie for me. Your horse has to have that "want to" personality
