    Whipple, that thing is crazy lol. I wish they had a video showing you how they use it. Seems like if might just slip around their girth:P

    Have you seen those easy up stirrup things? You put them inside your stirrup and they hang lower so you can get on from the ground? Seems "interesting".. :P I dunno if I could trust it. I love my mounting block :)

    I have that problem, too. My horses are really tall. :/

    You could try that thing where you lean across the horse's neck and have then left you up. I might try that with my guys. Probably not a good idea for a really heavy person, for the horse's sake, but it's easier than vaulting up. I spent all summer last year trying to swing up onto my TB, but I never succeeded. I can only vault onto him if I'm standing on the side of a hill. Otherwise you could just use a mounting block.

    I use different methods for different horses.

    On my oldster Indian, I use the run and jump method. He is a little tall for someone who is 5 foot 3, and he doesn't seem to mind too much if I accidently take a wack at him with my boot. ;P

    For Smokey, he is very sensitive bareback, so I have to get a leg up, or get atop of a fence and just hope to goodness he doesn't run out from under me.

    For High Five, I have to shimy my way up on him. He was a cutting horse, so I was the first one to ride him bareback, and it is always an interesting experience with him. :P

    Now, for my new horse Trigger, I am terrified for when he comes back from training and bareback riding comes around. :P I figure I will start off with a bareback pad w/ stirrups on him.

    It's funny. I tried to ride a little Haflinger bareback yesterday and I thought about how everyone was saying to get on. I need to listen to my own advice. I tried to pull myself up and failed. When I finally was almost on my tummy, he took a step to the right and I fell on my butt. The trainer, another girl riding, and the horse thought it was hysterical. I decided to get the mounting block after that. Now I feel weak... :)
