    Good Examples of True Collection?

    Hey everyone!

    I'm looking for some really good examples of "true" collection in photos, and I was wondering if you all could give me a hand or show me some of your favourite examples of this? I've been having a hard time finding photos that I feel really display this, probably because in half of them I see the rider hauling on the curb bit of the double bridle (by hauling, I mean the shank is nearing parallel to the ground), etc.

    I'd really appreciate everyone's help! And of course I'd love to just look at some happy, well-ridden horses too!

    Edit: Basically, as long as the horse is truly travelling back to front without being pulled into a frame I'd love to see a photo of it, so this could be anything from hunters, to western horses, to dressage horses, etc.

    Have a look at Carl H and Charlotte D, they are very talented riders who know how to ride the hind legs up to the bridle.
    Edward G is also an exceptional, incredibly talented rider - his hands have no backwards tendency, his pelvis moves beautifully with the horses paces, and the neck is ridden out from the either.

    It's hard to evaluate collection from stills--to me there's always a living flux, between horse and rider.

    Anyway, this isn't the competitive, grim aiming-for-perfection kind of ride. File it under: Haiyng Fun with Your Dressage. I think just wearing those skirts lightens the atmosphere. But I believe it's good example of collection:

    OP asked specifically for images depicting lightness, not engaged curbs and gaping mouths, re the PK pictures. PK is the Parelli of the dressage world as far as I'm concerned, except he can't ride as well as Parelli.

    Anyways, there are good oldies, there are some new people on the scene who are just as good. If you want pictures, Google "dressage" and take your pick. I could rattle off names of people who I like to watch ride for days. Robert Dover to me is the modern North American rider who epitomizes lightness.

    Ach well, Anebel may disagree, but I don't think you can go too far wrong with these lads:

    While that may be true of the last pic, what about the second pic where he is riding ENTIRELY on the curb rein and the snaffle rein is completely floppy?
