Just ride with the movment of the horse and by the sounds you need to lengthen those stirrups and just get used to the feel

Relax to the horse's movement that helps alot. The times I've ridden in a western saddles. I've noticed that it digs into my thighs (I ended up with bruises) so when I ride in them I try not to hug the horse too much.

Some other tips are to sit deep in the saddle and to "sit on your pockets"
When I ride I carry very little weight at all in my stirrups.

Well one of my previous teachers told me to imagine your legs were roots , and then to put your wieght in your but. But that might be a little hard to understand. If it helps at first you can hold on by sqeezing your legs together to grip, then you can slowly work out of that habit.
