How do you guys get your horse head to do a collected canter?

How do you guys get your horse head to do a collected canter?
If you mean “frame” , it does not come from the neck/head. It actually comes from the hind end meaning lots and lots of experienced leg and seat. Which comes with contact/connection (BUT don’t “pull” your horses head down)
Hold the contact and lots and lots of
Leg. I know it sounds counter intuitive but it does work.
