The excercise in the arena seems like it will help her to submit to the bit easier. Breaking it down like that definitely helps me to get a clear visual in my mind.
I just checked out the half halt section and it's very informative. Again, thank you for the links. I'm thinking about also picking up some english riding books as well. (: I'll start on half halts tomorrow, if the weather holds up.
As for the possibility of her not being taught collected... I think that she was, but with me never riding 'collected' in the english term I believe that I'm confusing her. She was bred by Sharon Vanier Sperte out of Washington, and I did some research and it seems like english is the preferred type of riding with their horses, hence the wish to change my riding style.
