Also, try mounting with a block or lengthen the stirrup. I just discovered that although my mare is not sore when I am on her, I was causing her pain AS I MOUNTED. She didn't mind once I was up there, but getting on was not a happy place. However, when my son boosted me up and there was absolutely no pulling on her withers (bareback), she stood stock still and didn't batt an ear.
