Just my two cents on the matter. I do not mean to insult or offend anyone just wondering what others opinions are on collection and simply stating what I believe is true collection and how it should be.

I'm not sure what discipline you ride but isn't controlling the level of collection kind of what training horses is all about? The horse can't read your mind, you have to ask.
