A trainer told me that your knee/inner thigh stuck to the saddle. Example: have an index card between the saddle and your thigh and the card shouldn't fall. What do you think about it?

It's pretty much true. You don't wanna have a like death hold on the card but yes you would want it to stay in place where it is
Kind of true. You don't want your leg to be too tight as to pinch, but too loose and you'll flop around the saddle. Holding a little with your inner thighs will help you - bareback strengthens this skill.
