Techinally, you should have a line from your ear, shoulder, elbow, hip to heel. You need to think of your arms almost like a right angle, and don't drop them into your horses' mane/withers.
Its easier said than done, and it takes time to get out of bad habits! Try and think up with everything, looking up, not up up to the roof obivoulsy ;), hands up, toes up.
Or you can do what my instructor did and wind a whip between your elbows.. try dropping your hands then ;)
