Came across this video that seems to make a lot of sense when talking about the highly coveted true collection of a horse. It is great when you can ride a horse with light contact which the horse seeks instead of them leaning or balancing on the rider's hands. Unfortunately the gals at my barn suggest a harsher bit to get a "lighter" front end when I think the problem may be the horse is just not strong enough to hold himself properly and is not yet ready for how the rider WANTS him or her to be, even if you are pushing them forward.
What do y'all think?
