I agree with Drew. Your fellow will be perfectly fine at doing low levels.

Just keep an eye on any signs that tell you that he is at his limit.

Remember, Jumping isn't the be all and end all of riding. In order to do either Jumpers or Eventing, you must have ALOT of Dressage under your belts to beable to compete at the low levels and be good at it.

Jumping is dressage with Speed Bumps - and in the Eventing World, Dressage is the most competative and difficult stage in this sport, and if you do not do well in your Dressage Phase, you will struggle to place top 5. When you compete, you'll be riding amongst many who spend hours doing Dressage - so be ontop of your game.

GP Jumpers spend up to 4/5 days a week doing Dressage and their horses can do minimally level 3 movements - so keep that in mind as well when you start training.

Paint is a "color" not a breed. Kinda like grey or roan,has nothing to do with the breeding,just the skin. Wish I could attach photos,have one of a paint that has every conformation fault in the world! But it is a pretty color and someone loves it. It is clean,fat and has a new halter..
You're misinformed.

"The American Paint Horse is a breed of horse that combines both the conformational characteristics of a western stock horse with a pinto spotting pattern of white and dark coat colors. "
-- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paint_horse

"A Pinto horse has a coat color that consists of large patches of white and any other color."

There, you can read all about it for yourself.

I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,
There they are all standing in a row

Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head

Again - not every Paint will be good at Jumping. Just like not EVERY Thoroughbred is good at Jumping. Not every WB is good at Jumping - it all depends on conformation.

I feel it is unfair to say "YES, Paints are great at Jumping and Eventing" when in reality it isn't the breed - it is the conformation. Just because you have a TB doesn't mean you'll do well at Eventing. Just because you have a WB doesn't mean you'll do well at Dressage.

I have a solid bred Paint who is extremely talented over fences, he's brave and willing. Paints I have found to be a athletic and willing breed but it depends more of course on the qualities of individual horse. I've met many paints that are very talented over fences and in eventers. As far I as know as long as he's willing and has everything he needs for it physically there's nothing stopping him.

I consider Beginner Novice, Novice, and Training as the lower levels. Anything beyond Training is starting to get into the upper levels. There are some levels below BN in some places. Green as Grass/Tadpole/Intro are usually all the same thing and are a great way to start out!

eveneterdrew: I love you're quote about dressage...I did some novice eventing before I got heavy into dressage (back problems with jumping)...Some of those horses out there in the eventing dressage ring! Ridiculous!! In a really funny way :) At least they try right!?

Life is better at a gallop.

I'm old enough to remember when IF a QH had a Paint foal it sometimes was killed so that no one would know the bloodline was "tainted". Many good bred spotted foals were sold under the cover of night. Some with very minimal markings had "plastic surgery" to remove the offending spot.Thank goodness someone decided "No good horse is a bad color"

DressageLady: Thanks! I saw it on a T Shirt on a website and I fell in love! Dressage has always been the hardest for me and my horses. Out of all of my horses, the best score we have ever gotten is a 32 when we went Novice. Lol! I agree, some of the horses in eventing... you can tell they aren't there for the dressage ;)
