mounting from ground

Question. For those of you that need/use a mounting block or something else to get on and off your horse. How can you travel for trail riding where there is no block to get off/on?

You could find a rock or something to use? XD

I know of a friend who uses on of these due to bad hips. Says it is a life saver. And you only have to stick it in your pocket

I can mount from the ground if I have to, I prefer to use a mounting block to avoid putting unneccesary stress on my horses back (ie; saddle rotating pressure on the spinus proceeses etc)

Truck tailgate, large rock, stump, hill, .... I have never not found something to mount from. I can mount from the ground if I had to but I prefer a fence mount or mounting from something.

Ditch works really good, hubby can't mount from the ground on an English saddle, put the horse in the ditch, works fine.

I taught my horse to line up to anything and everything I ask her to...even if it means she's in a ditch and I'm not. (:

There is always something. I use ditch (arroyo), rocks, and dear feeders they conveniently position by fence thoughtful of them!

This fear held me back from some of the longer rides I wanted to do for a couple of years but then I just said forget it and this last year started coming off more mid ride and finding a rock, a log or putting the horse on the trail and myself up on a ledge......i also had a friend give me a boost once.

Ditch, stump, picnic table, convenient rock... necessity is the mother of invention.
