training to mount from a fence/rock/log.

A month or so ago I saw part of a u-tube vido of a woman standing on a mounting block using the reins to "train" the horse to always turn and be "square" to her so she can mount from a mounting block or any other object.
I thought it was John Lyons or Monty Roberts doing the talking but I cannot find the utube video now.
Can anyone tell me how to train a horse to do this, I don't want to use "clickers" to do this.
If you know what video I'm talking about please post the link.

This is a pretty good explanation pretty much summarizes how I learned to do it

This one shows a guy using a halter to train the horse. Might not be a bad idea to work on the training in a halter with a long leadline.

Help with mounting from mounting block

This video I did (very poor quality, sorry) and it's the same idea as the above only one has hold of the horse's REIN, (just the inside rein, and one NEVER changes rein or gets off the block/fence/log/rock etc.)

Thanks!! I have not seen this particular Buck video but I did see the other one this morning while looking for the "particular one" I found a month ago..

I still would like anyone to post a link if you think you know which video I'm talking about.

It wasn't this one by our very own Tinyliny was it?

No.. I saw this one also.. I can NOT hear anything being said in this video..

What she has to say may be wonderful but I cannot hear it.. I have my sound turned on wide open and cannot hear it. But I can hear other videos..

The link is muted just unmute the video where the speaker has an x next to it

I made that video with a cheap camera and am sorry that the sound is so bad. I should either remake it or subtitle it! It was just a little goofing around my friend and I did. But the use of ONE REIN is very helpful, and moving the horse over with a whip or the hand works.
Buck didn't use that, and I think I shall work on thatl. Mac is super easy to mount now, but he wasnt' like that at first. It took me about 45 minutes to train him to siddle over and be good. And he looks forward to the little treat I hand to him from the saddle, after I am in it. I know, bad habit.
I do spoil him some.

Hi tiny.. I put my ear right next to the speaker and could hear most of the video.. my quesiton is.. why just hold on to one rein? I understand using a stick/whip type thing I saw in some of the other videos but I don't understand your one rein.
This is still not the video I saw earlier and I'm still searching.

Yeah I like that version of the technique too. When I do it I'm not thinking so much of directly telling the horse where to go as much as I'm just creating some movement and giving release when he trials going where I want him to. It's kind of like playing Marco Polo . It's one of those exercises that's good for a lot of different things. Really builds feel in both the horse and the human.
