Mounting bareback

Anyone know of any good ways to mount bareback from the ground? I used to have a 14.1 hand horse and I could just take a running leap and manage fine. But now my horse is 15.3 and I have no clue what to do. Any suggestions? :)

Use a mounting block I guess! I can't think of any way to mount a tall horse, bareback, from the ground except that.

Well, I was looking for a way to get on from the ground. I just wanted to know in case I ever needed it. And I thought it would be neat to know how :)

I have absolutely no way of getting up from the ground except to find something to stand on. I plan on teaching my two to stand and be mounted next to anything because I will be screwed this summer otherwise.

You know those moon bounce shoes?

Yeah you'll be needing some of those.

I'll be keeping a eye on this, I always use a mounting block or a fence

Swing up Indian style. Grab some mane with your left hand while you face his hindquarters. Now throw your bum and right leg over his back. The downside is getting a case of the giggles. You'll get only half way the first few times. The trick is to think about throwing your hips to the other side. It won't happen but that is the mental picture you need.

Left hand in the main to help pull as you step to the head of your horse. One step and jump off your left leg pulling yourself with your left hand in the main in a swinging motion. Right hand can actually grab the back of the horse and help some too. Use to work for me. Any size. Today I can't really jump over small rock..so I never try to mount bareback..lol..ride safe everyone

We use the trucks. Walk horse to truck, then get on bed or bumper. Then ease down on their back. But a stump, barrel, or fence works just as well.
