Where his head is? Is that considered true collection?
At some points it is near perfect and other times he has a broken neckline. Of course, everybody has a different opinion on what "true collection" or where the head should be.
To me, in the second video at 0:27 (trotting picture) has the ideal headset. The nose is slightly ahead of the vertical, the poll is highest, and the neck forms one smooth line. The tail and back are relaxed and the horse looks alert and happy, The parallels of the front and hind legs are almost the same. Some people will disagree with me but that is ideal in my view.
