Weighting your elbows....
I'm currently struggling with keeping weight in my elbows (as well as into the long muscles of my back). I guess my struggle is both physical and mental.
On a longer rein it's no problem. Elbows weighted and stable but as soon as I pick up contact my elbows straighten and I've lost my connection to the horse. Also during most up transitions I allow my elbows to go forward again loosing my connection.
Any suggestions on how to weight the elbows and ride more from the back and core? I get it on and off but easily loose it.
