Can trail horses compete?

I am looking to buy a horse in a few months to a year, and i have come to discover that trail horses sell for a lot cheaper than other horses. I was just wondering if an experienced trail horse would have no problem with the basic walk, trot and canter routine, and if it would go over jumps. I compete in jumping, so i'd like a horse that knows how.
If you have any other tips on choosing the right horse, please let me know. Thanks!
