I don't think the intent is is to eliiminate all older riders because the property owner is a member (and the club president) and she is 67. She has bad arthritis in her shoulders and has had one knee replaced but she can still mount from the ground. She is saying it is a matter of safety and if we want to be a member of the club and use her property we have to follow her rules. Personally I am pretty sure it is her way of getting rid of a few riders she doesnt like who she knows darn well will never be able to mount from the ground but whatever the reason it affects all of us and we need to be able to do this.We only have to show we can do this once then we can go back to mounting with a mounting block for the rest of the season if we wish.

I'm afraid she and I would be going round and round then.

At our age, I'm 57, much of the elasticity is gone. And puts undue strain on joints and on horse when trying to mount and it takes longer too.

And what in the world does being able to mount from the ground have to do with how safe a rider you are? I've seen people that can mount easily that are the biggest fools out there, and the most dangerous.

I really think she and others are wanting to get rid of the older riders is all this is.

And I'd be seeing a lawyer too, for that matter. This is age discrimination at its finest.

You can also teach the horse to bow, kneel, or put their neck down and raise it with you on it. All can help. When I was a kid my mom taught the first to my horses, and also taught me how to walk up the horse's leg. The main thing seriously is to have a horse which stands rock still, and that you face backward and then spring up.
