its hard to explain by typing it, its much easier to be shown.
But when you feel the horse move over the fence, if you pay attention, you can litterally feel his legs, neck, back, everything move in a motion. And what you need to do, because I used to stand when I was younger, you need to "move closer" to the horse and feel him. He knows what he's doing;
With that said: if you mess up, or just are stiff over the fence, you can mess your horse up, and that COULD lead to a horse falling and you and him possibly getting hurt.
So if you litterally make your body move in close with him.
Move your arms up on his neck and move your hips so theyre loose. So you can bend them.
Work on ALOT of two-point positions. And have that loosen your hips and upper body.
Its hard when your hips are tight and unable to move.
