I'm trying to really understand what collection is, so is this a good video explaining it?
I remember when my trainer had me starting to teach my horse to "follow the reins" by loosening them, and pushing him forward into them, while having him stretch his neck. Was this collection being taught?
A while ago, an old 4H coach would have me trotting my horse, and then round my heels up into him to get him to round his back. Is this a way to get collection?
I'm trying to put the pieces together and really find what will work. Anyone have good exercises to do on my horse to work towards collection?
