Holding A Crop - Weird Problem
I ride with a crop and i find if i have it in my right hand, my hand is in a very awkward position. My thumb faces inwards [piano hand], my elbow loses it's bend and it's generally very stiff and uncomfortable. This is just in the arm/hand with the crop in it.

When i ride with my crop in my left hand, however, i don't have any of these problems. It's got the point where i really try and avoid riding with the crop in my right hand unless it's unavoidable [when i'm schooling]. I'm right handed.

Why may this be and what can i do to solve it? It's really starting to irritate me.
