This mare has Nasrullah, Bold Ruler, Northern Dancer, Native Dancer, and a Canadian champion TB named Northern Minister in her pedigree. These are the only names I recognize but I really don't know much about any of 'em.
Is deciphering such a pedigree even a useful tool? And if so, what do you make of this one?

If the horse is not intended for breeding, look at the horse in front of you. All TBs are so closely related that good ones can pop up from anywhere. But since jumping is 40% heritable, per the Hanoverian Verband (or at least free jumping), it can give some comfort if there are lines that have historically done well over jumps.
Nice pedigree. The sire line is excellent, and the damline isn't shabby. Deputy Minister isn't very well proved in sport horses yet; but the tail female is excellent other wise. Rock Talk is a nice line to find so close.

I love Private Account. He is Sea Accounts' damsire. And you have Bold Ruler and Damascus in the third generation. This cross is known for producing great jumpers...even back in the bloodlines. And especially as viney mentioned, jumping ability is a highly inheritable trait.
No personal experience with Deputy Minister, though I've heard good things about him.
Vice Regent is nice to have for a hunter type. My Damascus granddauthter has beautiful conformation and movement and if she wasn't a great race broodmare would be a wonderful show mount. She is throwing long turf runners out of short dirt stallions. The only way we can explain that is Damascus.
