Depends on the horse itself and how it is trained. I turned my barrel racer into a jumper, I found no obvious problems coming from the fact that he was trained western first. He was able to go back and forth with ease.
I also had another horse that was trained western pleasure, that I was working on trying to get to go english. He grew frustrated because he was set in his ways to be western pleasure, and when I started working on him to carry himself more up hill and on the bit. He grew frustrated fast and I had issues, but that was his personality. He didn't like change too much.
