So my instructor is ALWAYS nagging me about keeping my arms up and elbows bent but whenever I see anyone riding in an English Equitation class or anything their hands are always very low and spread apart. Another thing is that when my elbows bend and my hands go up, Cheyenne's head goes up too and my low collection disappears right away. I have a show this Saturday so I'll be practicing tomorrow to make some corrections, so yeah.
If you could find a picture of correct hand/arm position as appose to incorrect position to show me, that would be awesome! And what I can do to get it right and keep my hands up and Cheyenne's head down.
Thanks a bunch!
BTW: The picture is during my last show in September, I wasn't thinking of hand position here so this should be about where my hands go naturally.
