A couple questions - need help!

by wannabeaneventer

I have a couple questions I need answers to, so if anybody knows, please comment!

1) Sometimes I ride a horse for lessons that is a mostly neck reining horse. I ride him English
though, but since he's a western horse for the most part, he keeps his head down very low. How do I keep my elbows/arms in the right position, and keep contact with his mouth? (I don't want a ton of slack in the reins)

2) When going into two point, how do you slide your hands up AND keep your reins short enough? Are you supposed to have the reins really slack?

Thanks for any advice, I really need it:)
