It all about physics. We mount the horse at a 45 degree angle as if to vault over him. Do you have wooden board fencing? If so, mount the fence, over and over and over. PRACTICE MOUNTING FROM THE GROUND!!
Use the highest rung you can, get a super deep bend in your left leg, knee almost to your chin, spring up, hesitate, then gently swing your leg over to the other side. Dismount the fence by swinging your right leg over to meet the left, lean on the top fence board with all of your weight, kick your left foot away from the fence board, then jump down, bending your knees to absorb the shock.
The fence is VERY FORGIVING and it won't walk away from you. =D
