Just getting your heel on is enough when you do it alot.

I used to ride with a gal who was a bit chunky who rode a chunky pony of not quite 14.2hh. She would watch me jump or swing up on my 15hh mare and decided she wanted to. Let the laughter begin.. er, it almost didn't stop until she gave up trying to swing up. She aligned the pony, I told her to try to jump clean over him but that it wouldn't happen but the mental picture might get her in the right position. She'd take a good run but her first leap was half hearted, the second much better. Her pony wasn't stupid and he knew exactly what to do to foil her attempts. As she was airborne he moved his body closer without moving his feet. OK, she'd be careful of this only this time he moved it away and her landing almost knocked the wind out of her. I was watching him but saying nothing. I couldn't as I was laughing too hard to talk. After numerous attempts the pony had won and was happy to line up with a mounting block. On one attempt he even sucked his belly up to raise the height of his back. Gotta give him credit.

The rest is most likely on the other side. On Brisco, the parts closer to his whithers lie on the other side than the rest of the mane.

Maybe I'm just a pansy, but I've never tried mounting bareback without something to stand on. It seems like it would be very uncomfortable for the horse, even if I'm only 90 lbs! xD I always lead Diamond (the mount that I use on the farm, 13.2hh) to our round hay feeder or a stump and get on.

It's not uncomfortable - if you do it right. Obviously it would be if you always kicked him when you swing you leg over, but I don't think it hurts him or anything. It's also a good thing to do because the horse should be able to stand still while you do whatever.

I'm not a very springy person, so I just lead my mare over to the fence, climb up, and on her back I go! I'm going to work of "neck mounting" or whatever you call it this summer. It looks pretty neat!

I can mount bareback up to 16.2ish. But it resembles a spider monkey mounting a moose. It's far from gracefully.

I actually successfully did the one where you grab the mane and swing up on my trainers gelding that I want haha. We were laughing about it and I figured eh why not try worse that'll happen is I fall on my butt, he's only 14.1 though. However it was very far from graceful and I had to basically crawl up once my heel hooked lol.

just a small town girl with a big town dream :]

I use a mounting block and have my left hand on the main for balance and take my right hand and help to push my right leg up high enough (my horse is tall and I am very short) up and over my horse's back and then pull myself on with the main and I am good to go. Couldn't do it from the ground without knocking my horse silly.
