A true riding master
 
I was browsing around on Youtube and found this. Pirouettes, flying lead changes...all bareback without a double bridle. I really don't know what else to say except I find this video incredible.


Photo slideshow of the bareback training (seems to show some half-pass at points)

It's easier to tell what the rider is doing, heh heh. Gorgeous horse.

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.
