Do you think a Friesian would make a good show jumper, and why?

Do you think a Friesian would make a good show jumper, and why?
Certain individuals may be different, but usually Fresians are used as dressage horses because of their presentation and as carriage horses. They are technically still a draft breed, so they are not as good as jumping in general. Doesn't mean you can't use them as show jumpers but u probably won't get to the upper levels.
why not? an horse when it is born does not know if it is worn for dressage or for jumping, we can teach even more disciplines to a horse! we are the ones who tend to standardize the races for certain types of disciplines!
the Friesians are intelligent and versatile horses
