I've been riding for 5 years now, but I only go riding about once a month. My instructor says that I have a problem keeping my arms down... I play flute, and I was wondering if that is some way attached to that..? I have been riding English for a while now, but I am worrying that this action will cease me from moving forward in my riding skills.
Also, since I don't go riding very often, do you have any tips for practicing keeping my arms down without a horse? (Besides the obvious tucking your arms in?)
