Thank you all so much for your helpful advice! I think QLDHorseGal has it spot on; so many lessons with my instructor telling me "shorten your reins, shorten your reins!" has got me to the point where I have no bend in my elbow and a stiff back supporting my body when my arms are out in front of me. I plan to have my elbows by my side for my lesson today and see how that goes. I have to also remember to breathe!
I will post another video if I can get my sister to actually switch on the video camera. :roll:
