Dressage Solutions: To Maintain a Correct Upper Body Position in Corners

Try this tip from Jane Kelly.

To maintain a correct upper body position in the corners…

Imagine you are balancing on an exercise ball. If you lean your torso into a turn, your seat bones will push the ball (horse) in the opposite direction (below right). To help the horse balance, keep your spine straight and use your shoulders to turn. Your seat bones will follow. Try it on a ball, it works!
