My gelding puts his head down like that. Sometimes so far he almost touches the ground. But he is not rooting the bit he is just stretching his back and natural collects himself that way.He also trots that way, stretching to loosening the muscles. I give him the rein he needs because he was taught to naturally collects himself. But I also ride with a loose rein so he walks, trots, and canters that way on his own. He does not like to be held with tight reins,because he cant stretch and round out. Hope this helps. :)
