You should sit straight upright. If the horse rears, then you lean forward. If it bucks, you're still better off sitting straight.
Unless you are an advanced rider, that doesn't sound like a good lesson horse. If you are that unsure about what to do, get off before the horse reacts, and lead it to where you need to go. No shame in getting off before an accident. Getting off during or right after could have adverse effects for the horse. Such as if the horse reacts, the rider will come off.
