Rhythm, balance, suppleness, obedience, impulsion.
Not necessarily in that order.

The very very basics are steering and stopping. But I agree with Strange

I agree with the above, but if you are looking for a guide to the "basics" I would highly recommend "The Principles of Riding".
See
The Principles of Riding (Complete Riding & Driving System)
(I have no idea why is so expensive on Amazon... it's really not a ridiculously expensive book)

To me if you bounce around on the horse's back then you can't ride. There shouldn't be air between you and the saddle except when you want there to be. Using your hands and legs effectively depends on being able to sit/post correctly.

Good balance and a good seat- you can't progress far if you don't develop them. Transitions and steering on a very very basic level but I think balance and seat are the core to it really.
