The process of collecting horses:

Collection – balancing the horse under the rider, to give it a position from which the horse easily performs movements in any direction.

The collection consists in the fact that the horse brings the hind legs under the body and gives the head in the back of the head with a slightly raised neck.
The rider gets the horse to collect by increasing the pressure of the shankels and at the same time slightly gaining the rein and giving his body from the waist forward.

During movement, the degree of collection varies depending on the width of the gait: on shorter movements, the collection increases, and on wider ones, it decreases. The horse’s easy hold on the rein is maintained at any level of gathering.
