He's learning to break at the poll... Please excuse the laziness, I normally ride in a loomis but didnt feel like switching out the bits that morning.

To break at the poll, does that mean he tucks his chin towards his chest?

The third pictures shows it the best. It's the curve in his neck about 6" from his ears. It is one component of getting a horse collected.

Yes, thank you. The third picture is definately the better of the two. In the first, he's bracing a bit. In the third he's easing off of the bridle a bit more because I'm asking for bend in his body as well. (he had been dropping across the arena to avoid the muddy spot there)
