True, but I think it just all depends on the horses' body build and mind. Jumping puts a lot of stress on horses joints, no matter the breed. If he has a athletic body and a good, willing personality, go ahead and give it a shot. Also, it depends on training. Has he had jump training in the past?
If he's had jump training or has none and you have none, I strongly suggest getting a trainer.
Jumping is really a matter of saftey, and you always have to remember this.
Good luck. Keep us updated!
