I know this will sound weird but imagine your horse is like a wave, just follow the movements of the horse very calmly like a wave
I like to put a crop or a stick in my hand vertically and with the rains
That sounds rly helpful thx
I had that problem so have someone like a trainer or a barn friend have u on a loung line and have a super long rein and keep ur hands there
