I horse hop to get onto my 18.2hh draft sometimes! But that's mainly because I'll ride my 12.2hh pony then decide to switch. Standing on Bart and stepping over Dozer is just easier mid-ride than getting off, grabbing a mounting block, lining Dozer up next to it, and climbing on.

OH WE HAVE A WALL. That might work.. or I might get my dad to throw me up there.. but there is the risk I do what I normally do and end up on the other side o.0

Gosh tiny, I don't even think a crane will do!! Be realistic!! I need to jump off the empire state building!

OH, yeah, base jumping to saddle.

Ok, realistically, you will need a leg up from a good Samaritan.

And maybe have your dad build you a mounting block. I believe the AQHA has a "How To" on their site.

I have never been on anything bigger than 17.1hh and that was back when I was flexible... and bounced when I landed on the other side.. now I just splatter. But I think I'd get altitude sickness on 18 + hands!!!

Someone who may find it amusing to chuck me over the other side you mean

My dad+diy=A&E. I'll build it hahaha!!

I can mount her from the ground. Just. I'm 5ft7.. its a fair way to get up, and no altitude sickness, only awesomeness because you're the biggest thing around

Me too.. I have been waiting for ages. No point buying one when I first got her, she was skin and bones. Starting to save for a second hand dressage saddle at the moment, might part exchange for a new one if they'll take the kieffer... I can't wait to have my own dressage saddle!!
