This OP is about mounting bareback, not with a saddle. There is no stirrup strain causing the saddle to wrench the horse's back. It's common sense that mounting from the ground can hurt a horse's back IF done incorrectly. If done correctly I don't think it does bother or hurt the horses.

swing up mounting video

This guy Endospink has a lot of wierd videos on YOutube and I remembered this one and retrieved it. He shows how you mount a tall horse with a swing up. Somewhere there's a better video explainging the physics of the technique, but the really important thing, and you can see it in the video, is the when you thro your right leg up, that you don't also raise your head up. In fact, your head must actualy swing downward to counterbalance your upward swinging leg and not deaden the momentum.
Watch the first guy who swings on and you will see his head actually dip BELOW his center for a split second. The other guy who tries and fails does not allow his head to swing downward and thus he cannot swing on.

And yes, our young horses play on a daily basis, they rear, and buck and kick and crawl all over eachother, daily.

Lots of people I know only have one horse and ride them every day. In fact, most everyone I know only has one horse as we don't live in a very rural area with big pastures where it's more affordable to have several horses.

And I think I was talking about horses "mounting" each other and not just young horses playing. To put it more bluntly. Does your stallions mount your mares every day for say 20 years?

I am not asking about mounting by putting the foot in the stirrup, that's simple...i wanto learn how to leap into the saddle like the jockeys...facing their shoulder and jumping with both feet ??
