All I know is that I heard you're supposed to sit higher up, as said above, so that it's more comfortable for the horse. I just ride normally, but a little more 'relaxed' so that I flow better with my horse.

It already helps for me if I can just go ahead and keep sitting
I think it is indeed the same as regular riding!

Thanks everybody! =)

I've read that when trotting bareback, I should do something called sitting the trot. How do I do that?

Sitting the trot means don't post. I find the trot to be alot easier bareback than with a saddle on but that's probably just me. =) And yeah your posture should be pretty much the same as when you have a saddle on but you should relax your body so you stay with the motion of the horse.

Yeah, same here! It is very difficult to sit my Quarab's trot in a saddle (English and Western) but he is so easy to trot bareback! I think it may be because you can feel their muscles move more bareback and you can "match" their movement. But it is weird lol :)

Sitting trot is exactly that, sitting. You do not post/rise. Use your core muscles to help you sit with out getting bounced all over the place.
