Whether or not she phrased her question correctly to others tastes, I think the rider is trying to accomplish a few things at the same time.
I think she is working on keeping the horses nose behind the vertical (which as absurd as I think it is, is common for pleasure arabs which can be observed through the manner in which the horse is slogging or walkaloping or whatever). I also think she is working on seat commands and by holding her hands at such a funny place is forcing herself to keep them still and use her seat to cue the horse. It the same time I think she is also working on her posture as seen when she keeps her eyes glued on the mirrors. It could be one or all of these things or none for all we know, she could be just riding weird to do it, who knows.
