I am probably the worst at dressage. I only started a little while ago but I can’t seem to keep my hands still and my elbows by my side. Do you have any tips on fixing it?

If possible ask someone to lounge the horse your riding and ride without the reins, grab some balls and try to keep your hands quiet, your elbows straight and you can practice the independence of your hands (bouncing in diferent rithms, it will help you a lot)
Hope it helps
Hold full mugs of water with your reigns and try not to let the water spill. Try putting a crop across your back and in between your elbows
