I recently had a family member videotape my lesson so I could see how my riding was doing from an observer's standpoint. My instructor has been often reminding me to "open my shoulders" or "sit up taller". From the video, I've been able to witness just how bad it really is: I have a consistently rounded back and hunched shoulders on the flat, and a rounded turtle-back over fences. Additionally, I have picked up a random habit of leaning to the inside of the arena and dropping my inside shoulder.
Do you know of any ways I can correct this, both during my lesson or maybe through exercises on the ground?
