In correct training, the horse’s head should be suspended from its withers in self-carriage and the weight of the rider’s hands should be the weight of the reins and a light connection to the lips and tongue of the horse.  Such lightness is the punitive goal of Baroque training styles and modern classical training.  It is imperative that, from the horse's viewpoint, pain is escapable and controllable, so lightness of course is important for the horse at every stage of training, and those methodologies that embrace correct roundness training an constant self carriage are more correctly aligned with the correct application of learning theory than coercive methods.
