I have seen the worst conformed horses jumping successfully at the GP level. And, I have seen horses whose breeding lines and conformation would lead you to believe they would excel...only to be epic failures. I have seen PONIES beat huge warmbloods at the GP level.
Long story short....it all boils down to heart. If the horse has a love for jumping, the heart and courage, and a rider they trust with their lives, even the most unlikely horse will prevail.
