I saw the mounting up post, and my horse is different. She stands still until my weight is up on the one stirrup, then she starts to walk forward as I swing my leg over her...that annoys me. I want her standing still the entire time. Sometimes I stop and get off and discipline her with a back up then move up, but she doesn't care about that. She likes to ride and she knws we're going to go, so she jumps the gun. I just keep my reins in my hand and expect to stop her before my butt is in the seat. It's kind of a pain.
She also sidesteps away from me when I mount from a block....ALWAYS! She seems to not like that, but when we're bareback, I have no choice. How do I keep the backend from sidestepping out?
