It’s the first step to riding. You’ve got to get on the horse.
But the process of doing just that can set the tone for the rest of your ride.
And many accidents can happen right there at the mounting block.
The saddle slips, the horse moves before you’re ready, you lose your balance just as you go to swing your leg over the saddle…
There is a way to mount that is safe, easier for you, and more comfortable for your horse.
It’s the small details that make the difference – where are your horse’s feet, where are you putting your hand on the saddle, and what do you do with the reins?
In this video, I will demonstrate the most common mistakes in mounting that could easily end in an accident, plus how to mount correctly so you can feel balanced and secure in those first moments in the saddle.
