    I was going to ride my 16hh OTTB mare today(first time since the end of november) and after I finished lunging her I realized, oh crap I have nothing to use to get on! At first I couldn't even reach the stirrup, but I kept trying and eventually I did get on! YAY lol

    Sorry lol I just surprised myself

    I can mount a 17.2 hh horse from the ground in english gear. If you have the option to use a block, I would use it, easier on the back. For some reason I can't mount facing the rump, maybe I should practice.

    I have the same problem! I cannot even get on a 14hh pony my legs are terrible! They are worse than old person legs XD I cannot lift them very far at all...And I always have to use a mounting block which is very annoying because Lola keeps walking away from it..I would like to be able to mount from the ground eventually.
