In other words, do my research for me.
I'm still very much a beginner rider. I may have balance, but I don't understand a lot of what is discussed in articles, blogs, etc. For this post, I'll just ask about collection and the top line.
I have yet to come across an article or video explaining what a top line is. It's referenced a lot...this horse has no top line. Look how the top line filled out. And so on. What exactly are you looking at or for when describing a top line? Are there any YouTube videos, or before/after pictures with descriptions showing the change in top line after it's developed?
The same goes for collection. I can't spot a collected horse or tell you if he's stepping under himself. About the only thing I know about collection is to look for the back hoof stepping in the same spot as the front and the head placement at or near vertical.
So, do you know of any YouTube vidoes or articles with pictures that will help me to better understand collection and top line?
