So Saturday I was Event Grooming for my Lease horse's owner at a show. We were a little late so I took the horse to warm up and work in while she walked the course. Unfortunately, many showgrounds don't have mounting blocks, so I was slightly embarassed to have to mount from the ground. It took me a few attempts to get my leg up high enough to get my foot into the stirrup. Not fun at all.
(I did manage it in the end though)
I don't have any issues with my legs or my joints, it's just age and fatness creeping up on me, but I'd still like to be able to mount from the ground (when I really have to) without lowering my stirrup!
Does anyone know any good suppling exercises I can use to make my legs bend that much??
