Yes, that helps. My horse starts out trotting head held high, I will work on transitions until she starts to get her neck out level. At that point I leave her alone with a nice jog and her neck held where it is. Even a productive walk will help as long as the neck is level or a bit low.
I was just hoping there would be something else to do as well. What about a surcingle? (Sp)
