Very good post from GottaRide - but also what not so much confuses me but questions the OP's bias towards "english" is the fact that western horses are generally started and are taught to basic principles of collection in a snaffle or similar bit that is also used in english. I would also disagree that western is more "bit dependent" as some posters were inferring - rather I would hesitate to say that western is more focused on having their horses more in-tune with their seat aids in comparison with your average hunter rider (I say this lightly and for the GENERAL hunter population).

And regardless; collection does not equal a certain headset/position and you do not put or keep your horses head there...
