Round your shoulders, flatten those shoulder blades against your back. Hands follow shoulders, so if your hands look bad, its most likely an upper body issue.
Don't give your hands away. Sometimes I ride with a crop infront of my elbows, behind my back, if that makes and sence. Or pretend your holding a serving platter on top of your hands, with full tea cups on it. They idea is to get the energy to go forward through your hands/body, if you are off balance that engergy is going to escape.
Put your leg at the girth, that should help you from tipping forward. Sit on your butt not your croch.
