I consciously try to keep a neutral pelvis - both my horse and I are new to dressage and he can be "temperamental" sometimes and snakes the reins from me and then I completely lose my position. The first picture I definitely look like I'm on my crotch, but for the most part I don't have THAT forward of a pelvis unless we are in a struggle (lol!)

Thanks for all the tips though, I am certainly open to try anything!

Don't forget serpentines! They're so handy in loosening up shoulders because you change direction in loops, not just a slight gradual bend.

What I said is not my opinion, it's what is said in any book about correct riding. Correct riding is based on the best way to merge well WITH THE HORSE. Take a look at a book, for your horse's sake. Sally Swift's CENTERED RIDING is a good one, available everywhere.
