I'm getting lipizzaner. What about jumping?

I might get this Lipizzaner, Gustiavo Whisky.
He is a serios good Dressage horse. But he can't really jump. Can I let him be trained? I want him to do about 70cm jumps. Anything I should do?
Here he is. Isnt he cute

Most horses that have dressage training and compete in the upper levels have the potential and the muscle to jump. Smartness isn't an issue either. I'd definitely start looking into a trainer or you could train him yourself. It's not too difficult. Start by small things and don't ever rush him. Trot and canter over ground poles until you are both so comfortable that he doesn't even look at them. After that, put up the lowest crossrail possible and walk, trot, and canter over it. Let him sniff it, bite it, whatevever. The thing is, to take baby steps and never rush. And to just keep progressing forward.

He is beautiful, I loooove Lipizzaners! Gorgeous. Anyway, of course he can be trained to jump. I'd start with some ground poles, gradually. Maybe get a trainer to help you as well. It will take some time. But I'm sure it can be done.
