Roundness is a result of the interaction of the basic responses: Stop, Go, Turn, Yield and their development through the criteria of rhythm, straightness and contact.

Pressure with both reins on the bit must always mean slow/shorten the legs. Anything else, such as neck-shortening and roundness, adds confusion to the response. ‘Roundness’ should not be viewed as a response, but rather as a shaped quality of the basic responses. It will develop at a later stage as the horse progresses through the Training Scale.
