I was just wondering the correct placement for your hand when riding English. I was always taught to keep my hands up, my elbows bent and not to go past the horses withers because it makes the bit sit correctly in the horses mouth.
But I've seen seen pictures of people riding with the hands low behind the withers, some pictures I've seen they were even kind of on either sides of the withers.
Which way is correct? Or is both correct, it's just a matter of preference?
