Put the end of 2 crops through a belt loop on the side of your pants and hold the crop/whip normally with your reins. With the end of the whips through the belt loops is makes you hold your hands and wrists correctly.
This is close to what I was taught, except we didn't put it through belt loops, we rested both crops on our legs a little more lower than the belt line.
It's a great trick, that helps with your hand position, because every time your whips aren't on you, your not "correct". It's great for when your by yourself.
I think it's a little harder then the other method, because you still have to make the correction yourself, it's not just held in one place.
