If you allow the neck to remain in one place for the whole ride, you can end up with a horse that braces and is not flexible through the neck and poll.
That makes a lot of sense, both of you!
Thanks for taking the time to explain that, I appreciate it. :)

And I'll stop hijacking your thread, MightEventer!
