I say go for it! Most horses love to learn & teaching him something new will give him something to think about instead of the same'ol same'ol.
Ground driving is also a good start for any discipline ;) That way you can teach the horse to turn, stop & backup without actually being in the saddle.

"If a horse fails to do something that is because he was not trained to do it. If a horse fails to do something properly that is because he was not trained properly."
