Sit back and deep in the saddle keep a lot of support with you leg
I shall try this ... thank you very much
Collection is the last bit in the dressage training pyramid so make sure you have everything else first.
What I find the easiest for me To develop collection I go into canter and lean back and hold the horse to make the canter feel more like a bounce and develop lightness in the forehand which mean to encourage the horse to put weight on its hind quarters.
