    I know this sounds like a cop out, but I agree with what has been said so far, both good and bad. I will add that at times it looks like your inside shoulder is advanced.

    Ok so go on the ground on your hands and knees with your back flat and eyes looking at the ground - your pelvis will be neutral here, which is what you want. Now look up at the ceiling and point your bum at the ceiling too, so your stomach drops to the ground - this is your pelvis rotated back (the head position is just to help you understand what to do. Now bring your head back to neutral and keep your pelvis rotated back - this is the duck butt you have right now - to correct it, roll your pelvis back to neutral. You can over-exaggerate to see what it feels like, too.

    A very visual "visual": when in the saddle, imagine you have a tampon in, and you are pulling the string towards the horse's ears. That will make you tip your pelvis in the right direction.

    There's one description I've never heard before. String yes, but not it's origins. (laughing) Regarding pelvis tilt, I have them feel for it with a hand and then feel it move when they try to make the navel touch the spine then relax. If she is leading with the inside shoulder she may also be leading with the inside hip, common in right handed riders.

    Oh man! Now I'm going to be thinking about tampons while I'm correcting my pelvis!!! I don't know what I'd do if an instructor started yelling that out to me across an arena!!! I'd probably fall right out of the saddle!
