    Stilts work well. Pole vaulting is another simple way. Jumping off the roof of your house or barn onto there back works. Just make sure its bareback the saddle horn is very painful if jumping from over 20feet onto it.

    I've taught my horses to sidepass over to me on queue. So I can find a high spot, be it a log, stump, rock or just dirt. Once Ion that spot and the horses is positioned correctly, I can do as suggest above and swing up or belly flop up on the horses back.

    Back when I was younger and more agile, I used to first get on the horse basically on my belly (head on right side of horse, legs dangling on left side). From that point I could struggle and get my leg over her back. It took a patient horse and a more athletic me. I also taught my horse to park out so that she was shorter while I mounted.

    These days, I don't ride bareback...........

    This is how I use to do it. Now .. I'd be looking for the nearest stump.

    Picnic table usually. Sometimes stacked hay bales. I've used a hay wagon before if my horse is up in one of the far away fields to ride him back up the road to the barn.

    Swing on like a jockey! Or the other option is....jump, ugh, jump, jump, whoa dammit, oh gee.....stump? Fence?.....ugh, jump....whoa! Lol!!!!

    Swinging on like a jockey is not that hard after some practice.....when I worked at the track we all did it, and bareback, because we would bareback home and pony two. I couldn't do it now! I'd kick my horse in the flank!!!

    I only just bought a bareback pad for times when I can't be bothered or don't want to saddle up. It doesn't have stirrups though, is just a pad with a girth and a "monkey grip". If I'm by myself I use a milk crate (substitute mounting block) as they're light-weight and easy enough to carry to the paddock or I hop onto a fence - if I was in the bush I'd try to find a tree stump or fallen tree to help hoist myself up and over. I couldn't do it from the ground...even though my mare is just 14 hh.
