Exactly the same as when riding with a saddle.

Yeah, I wonder this too. I hear like what the above poster said, the same way as in a saddle, then I also hear relax and let your toes touch the ground....??

It does not matter if your in a western, english saddle or no saddle at all. Your posture should always be the same.

^ I don't agree with this, because in jumping your position is different from WP.....
But I think as long as your balanced and in the sorta right position you usually ride in.

Yes jumping is different. But still your legs should be underneath you, heals down, straight back..ect

I sit normally, except that I do not force my heels down. I just let my toes hang. When I make my feet into the normal riding position with the heels down, I create tension through my body and to me, it's better to be relaxed when riding than the worry about your heels.
I hope that made sense. =P
