Getting your horse to round it's neck while riding

Hi! I ride western but both my horse and I love jumping. We did some flat classes at a show and she was the only one that wasn't rounding her neck while the rest in the group were. Is there anything I can work on to get her to round her neck? She'll do it at a walk but not at a trot or canter. Anything will help. Thanks!!

The "rounding of the neck" comes from working properly from back to front. You don't make the horse hold their head like that, they do it once the rest of them is working properly. There are probably hundred of threads about this exact topic. Do a quick search for 'collection' and you should find tons of information regarding this.

What jumanji said. The neck position is a side effect of proper collection. You can get it with side reins, draw reins etc but it's not correct. Like everything else, its correct in the right context.
