Episode 140: Uncollected-Is that resistance, stiffness and tripping mental or physical?

I recieved an email awhile back that asked a short question. Here is what was written.
“The biggest question I can’t seem to get a clear answer for is “how do I ask for the collection?”

It is such a short…and seemingly simple question. I explain the underlying issue of collection and why the answer isn’t as simple as applying a few aids correctly.
I explain what collection is NOT and how to identify horses that may be struggling with balance. Sometimes the ‘resistance’ that a rider feels is actally a sign that the horse is unbalanced…and needs a physical fitness routine.
