AQHA,

That's a really broad question, and it can't be answered in a two paragraph internet post, much like your questions about collection and engagement.

I applaud your desire to learn, and would be happy to help, but it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to type an entire book on horsemanship into the computer.

Let me suggest this - do some research on your own about the terms you're curious about. Even typing the term into this board's search feature is a start.

When you have *specific* questions or want a detail clarified, rather than "tell me everything you know about ___________, what it is and how you do it." you'll get better quality responses.

In dressage
1.) Have a snaffle bit in their mouth - what I'm telling you to do is for a SNAFFLE ONLY, NOT a curb.
2.) Horse should know how to ride on contact.
Then as horse is working do a SLIGHT bend outside/inside, legs urge horse into rein contact then SLIGHT give with reins to reward horse for coming into contact.
3.) Repeat after a step or two to lower head more.

If horses does not have the basics this may not work, but works on all my horses who are classically trained in dressage.
