Easy Mount Step Stool

Anyone tried this? I read the reviews, the price is right, but I don't need any more gadgets that I don't use. However, this would solve the problem of mounting on the trail. I can't very well take a regular mounting block with me!

Haven't used one, but I don't see why it wouldn't work!

I think I'd probably forget to hold onto the string half the time and have to dismount and do it all over again LOL, but that's just me!

Tee hee...me too! I may put a clip on the end of the string and clip it to the saddle, so I won't forget. I did go ahead and order this item. Will let ya'll know how it works.

I have not used one of these mounting stools, but I have heard that you must have relatively flat piece of ground to set it on. Any slope in the ground will render the stool unstable. Also, you have to determine if a 10 inch boost is enough. It certainly isn't nearly as tall as most mounting blocks or stairs. Other than those two caveats, it looks like a good product.

I wondered about this also. If it's not quite tall enough, I plan to lower my stirrup, then I can shorten the stirrup once I get on. I just really want something I can carry with me. One time I was riding a friends horse, a 20-year-old arabian. Great horse, but older with the "I'm-ready-to-retire attitude." A friend had a loose girth so I hopped off to tighten it for her. Well, couldn't get back on. I tried standing my horse next to a metal utility box, but she kept moving away. I plan to keep my horse trained to stand where the heck I put her, but I'd like to have something to carry with me in case I can't find anything to mount from.

Now, the best thing would be for me to be able to mount from the ground. A couple of years ago I could have, but this darned extra 30 pounds I'm lugging around..... Blah!

No one makes one with adjustable legs?

Now that's a good idea. I've been searching the web for another one with some other option, but nothing available. This is the only one that's round with foldable legs.

Yes, please let us know how it works out! At 5'2" riding a 17hh warmblood with an energetic spirit, finding places to mount when out on hacks is a challenge!
