Well, I think a horse has only so much jump in them. The more you jump your horse, the more you are breaking down their joints which will have an effect on "How far the horse can make it"
The question is, not that the horse can jump - but, how much Dressage Fundamentals are under the horse? Afterall, GP Jumping horses can do minimally 3rd Level Dressage because Top Level Riders know how important "Flatwork" is, and do up to 5 days a week doing just that.
How well is he taken care of? Joint suppliments, Joint injections? Proper care before and after riding? Proper Conditioning? All that contributes to the well being of your horses physicall standing and mental.
