I'm 5'10 so I should be able to mount a 15hh easily right?
Wrong. I've got arthritis in my left knee so I struggle to use it to pull all my weight up.
Although I have broken the mounting block before, stood on it and it just collapsed under me! It was old but I didn't expect it to do that
Thank goodness Lottie is so bombproof and didn't mind me clutching onto her saddle for dear life as I fell through the mounting block, I could have seriously hurt myself if I wasn't holding on to her, and I'm so thankful that she didn't spook.
