    My horse isn't THAT tall (he is 15.3) but for some reason, I find it very hard to mount from the ground. So...I use a mounting block. I can get up on most horses from the ground...just not him.

    On my other thread, I got a lot of recommendations to make sure he isn't in pain..and he isn't! He's just 1) deciding to be a jerk or 2) scared of the mounting block.

    Because.....
    I attempted to mount from the ground today and he stood PERFECTLY still...the saddle was moving around so much, I thought he was going to freak..no, he didn't really care. As soon as I brought the mounting block around, he did not want to stand like a good boy any longer.

    Sooo...

    My question is- are there any ways to practice mounting? I think for some reason, I'm better at mounting in the summer...but are there any excersizes for strengthening your leg muscles or anything? Let me know xoxo thanks!
