I've worked with Lucky to ensure I can mount and dismount on both sides. I'm no trainer and don't claim to be but I just thought it might someday be useful. I didn't see anything wrong with this.
I rode with another girl last night. She has tons more knowledge and experience than me. As we went to dismount her horse, who occassionally kicks at people, had moved a bit too close for comfort on luckys left so I slipped off his right( well wrong) side.
The girl freaked out. Basically told me to never mount or dismount from that side and it might mess up his training? I felt very chastised by someone who knows way more than me but I still can't understand why it is such a bad thing for him to handle mounting or dismounting from either side? Can anyone here please enlighten me?
