If we could, the probe will never enter the black hole's event horizon from our perspective...
It will slow down to come to a halt just before the event horizon.

From the probe's point of view it will enter without any problem if the hole is big enough. (otherwise it will turn into spaghetti)

It will eventually enter the event horizon even from an outside perspective. If it didn't literally EVERY object ever would appear to be hovering just outside the event horizon. The reason this doesn't occur is because the event horizon isn't a fixed point, it expands as things fall in.
