I don't have the advantage of a mounting block here at my farm, so I learned to improvise! I stand on the bottem rung of the fence rail, and jump and swing on and hope that my horse doesnt' move! I can't for the life of me vault! I've gotten ALOT better at it thoguh! Practice, and have fun!

I use a 55 gallon drum to get on my horse bareback. Nothing wrong with using something to stand up on!

hahaha, I haven't thought of this one yet. Because I always ride with my friend or an adult there I cheat and get a leg up. But I'm starting to vault up now. When you do start I suggest you don't do it in your boots, as your horse may not like being smacked in the back with a boot I garanty you there is a big chance of this happening.

Teach your horse to lay down - then getting on is easy.

Alternative method ( don't laugh - ok go on if you must ) and kids - don't try this at home ( had Dora for a lot of years and KNOW she won't kick )

My horses are too tall for me to mount like that. I can dismount like that tho!

Well, my horse doesn't particularly like bareback. I've done it once with him. I used a mounting block (I'm only 5'5 and he's almost 16 hands). I laid on his back and threw my leg over. I was steady. BUT he was very confused and started to freaking run into a fence and out of the ring. So, I basically fell off of him. He's just a baby though. I'll have to try again with somebody holding him maybe.

Jaded, sometimes it can take years to develop the trust and comfort level required to confidently ride bareback. It is especially confusing to green horses that are just figuring out the saddle because bareback, everything brushes in a different place and with a different firmness. I have found that if I am going to ride a young one bareback, I will wait until after a good day's work when they are really tired. They are more willing to accept new ideas then.
