How to keep your hands steady? My trainer wants me to keep contact with the horse and have my reins short but I feel that he pulls my hands forward and we both lean on the contact?

More leg and bend your elbows always keep them steady and strong, maybe a different bit would be a good ideas until the horse gets muscle to hold himself up :)
Maybe he pull because they are too short every horse is different
Add more leg so that the horse has to actually Carrie his self and get into frame and be in contact, it'll stop him from that pulling feeling you have. And just remember to sit up don't let him pull you down
