think "move my body, not my hands" 'cause something has to move in order to ride a horse
You know how when you sit the canter your lower body follows the hrose but your upper body is still , same as in walk . REally, same in all riding. Your lower body belongs to the horse, so to speak. Same with your hands; they belong to the horse's mouth.
As you advance you will still be following the mouth, but you'll be encourage it to follow YOU more.
So, this independent use of the lower body from upper must also be used with hands (elbows) independent from the upper body. No locking up allowed!
