Already been posted, but still...

Someone pointed out to me that when I ride huntseat, my hands aren't still. I have no idea how to keep them still. With saddle seat and western, I have no problems keeping them still, but with huntseat I can't do it. I think it has something to do with where your arms have to be for this seat. My RI said that it's going to take a lot of practice to fix that problem, but I need to know what to work on the most with my lessons and I need to know what I can do to fix it.

Try to think of your arms being separate from your body. Let your hands, arms, follow your horses mouth and rhythm, while keeping your body still. Obviously, do this within reason. You don't want your hands pumping along with them rhythm, but if you can think about separating them they may not be so busy. Just a thought. Good luck!

Riding with a crop across your hands can really help tune their position, it may seem beginnerish, but I find the problem we have with hands is we have two, and we can concentrate on one but not both, so having a crop connects them and immediately tells you when one is doing something the other is not.
