Cheyenne, I read both threads and everyone responding is correct. If you get any information from Spyder, Kayty, or Anebel, LISTEN. They are dressage queens, and their advice is more than useful.

They are right. Seesawing gives false collection. True collection comes from behind, when the horse is off its forehand and on the bit. These things, however, are later things to be focused on. I suggest you look at the dressage training scale and work on that. You have to crawl before you walk.

Anyone suggesting to see-saw in order to gain collection doesn't know what they are talking about. What you are feeling when you see-saw isn't collection; it's called bit evasion.

Here ya' go.

As you can see, collection is the very last piece of the triangle. You must have all of the other components before you can achieve true collection.
The link I posted explains the triangle's first three levels. Master those first.

sunny- mmm...okay...just trying to figure out if I totally get the triangle thing...So I have rythm with her... not sure what it means by suppleness...for the contact do you mean like not loose reins and stuff? Not sure about the impulsion. and for straightness do you mean like posture?

I am by no means an expert, so I'm going to try to find some good links for you.

Pintotess: She's going great! I'm in the process of buying a new saddle, and we're about to move to a new stable, so I'm not going to do too much until then. I've "ridden" her a few times, and she was perfect. Such a willing little girl! Thanks for asking! :)
