Help?

I hope someone is online to help me out real quick.. I'm trying out for the college equestrian team and decided to try for western as well as english (just for kicks and giggles). Anyone have any quick, general tips on riding western? My butt has not been in a western saddle in a couple years. Help!

I have about an hour until try outs.. so.. go!

Actually, if you are riding in horsemanship, you should not have a lot of drape in your reins.

Sit back, shoulders open, heels aligned with your hips and shoulders, heels down, move with your hips only, nothing else. One rein holds the reins. Other hand it out in front, pretend to be holding a gun and pointing at your horses bit.

Like so:
