    I didn't read all the other posts, but I'll still give you my two cents.
    While trotting/cantering bareback try to stay balanced. Make sure you lean back, shoulders back, and heels down (!! Very important). You're supposed to have your heels down anyway when you ride saddle or not because it helps to secure your seat. The goal is to have a straight line from your ear, shoulder, hip, then to your heel.

    All the kids around here ride bareback,when you trot lean slightly back,and put your legs forward just under his neck line so you are a v shape.

    Somehow I don't think that's right. LOL. At least not how I'm picturing it!
