So I'm ordering this nifty gadget off ebay, and I'm excited to try it on my TB.
Bare-Up Mounting Aid
It's suppose to be a single strap that slips around the horse's belly with a stirrup on one end. You feed it through itself kind of like a belt and when you go to get up bareback it gives you a foothold.
Now I'm quite able to find various trees and rocks to clamber on to get on my 16'2 hh TB gelding, but I like the idea of being able to hop on in the field without having to line him up with a feeder or some other piece of leverage.
But what do you guys think? Has anyone here used one before? Do you like it, dislike it?
