It all depends in the conformation, no matter what the breeding is. Pictures would be more helpful.

Some of it depends on conformation, but for lower level stuff conformation faults don't mean a horse won't be able to do it. Heart and try can make up for it and the horse could love it and actually do pretty well.

Um... I would love to show you a picture of Twister but I don't know how, sorry. If you go on my profile and look at my horses and click on Twisters name you will see him.

It depends solely on the conformation and willingness. I have a mustang that would not be a good jumper. I've seen others that excelled at jumping. Also, if a horse enjoys it, then they can overcome minor conformational faults; the same goes the other way, if they've got good conformation for it but they don't enjoy it, then they won't be good.

Do you have good pictures to critique his conformation? That would help greatly.

ETA: never mind, I was going to explain how to upload pix, but I have no idea how to do it with a cellphone. Sorry.
