Do you manage to ride with still hands or are you a bit of a tweaker?

I used to be a terrible inside rein tweaker but since changing instructor and riding with a whip across my hands, I'm astounded at how much easier it is to maintain the roundness and balance of my horse.

It's amazing how much more I use my seat and legs when my hands are restricted. A real light-bulb moment ! :)

my sticky point is keeping my outside contact. I think I need somebody to glue my elbow to my body. But just like you, its a lightbulb moment when I do hold it and horse works into it so well. You can imagine them giving a sigh of relief and saying "well NOW i can do my job mum!"
