I don't see why that has anything to do with it. There's no reason why you couldn't apply dressage basics in your lessons. You'd probably just call it "flatwork"
Of course, there's a difference between just letting your horse plod along on the flat, and actually making them work. Jumping is not just about jumping- keep in mind that there's a lot of area to cover in between those fences, and dressage will help you a lot there!
Edit: Never mind, you were replying to the post asking if you had a horse. Well, anyway, the above still applies!
