Exclamation Training for collection

Can someone please explain to me how to train for collection.

Is it:

A forward horse

Tracking up

Then pushing the horses back end into the contact you have with the bit. (Steady hands, or sponging hands)

????????

I don't get it, can someone please help me?

And is the training both the same western and english?

I don't understand why you are asking the same questions you asked on the other thread?

It is not locked or closed.

Well since that thread was actually answering the questions you are asking here I would suggest you read the last few posts. Your answer is being posted there.

I just hate repeating myself all the time.

There is of course many books available you can read.

If you don't know what collection is, you won't have the knowledge to 'train for' it, even if you look through every one of the multitudes of collection posts that have already run their course. Get a dressage trainer if you want to learn, and don't expect it to happen for a long time time, talking years before you get true collection.
