It is important to get the horse off of his front end and use his hind end.

In Western Dressage, we need to understand that we always ride the horse from back to front, but raise the front end to make room for the back end to come under itself.

In order to do this we create impulsion, then rock the weight back to the hind end by creating a barrier in the front, elevating the withers through lifting the horse's poll/crest without hollowing the back.
