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 dont post. I find the trot to be alot easier bareback than with a saddle on but thats 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.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at 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.
