Not really relevant, but I agree with that bsms said about feeling collection for just a split second, and how awesome it is!
Sunny got a bit startled on the trail one day and when I asked her to come back to my hands, there it was. I felt her back round, her step lighten, her reach under herself, and it was one of the best things I've ever felt on horseback and it only lasted a total of probably 3 seconds.
If that wasn't actual collection, I don't know what is. I've felt, plenty of times, horses get startled and start prancing and get on the vertical, but that's not what this was. It just felt...different. And amazing.
Okay, sorry for the pointless rambling!
