How the HECK do you mount bareback?? I've tried and tried and tried and I just can't do it. I'm not weak or anything, I workout 3 times a week I think it's more the fact that I'm afraid of hurting the horse, or it moving and me falling. I'm 5'3" and my horse is 17h. I've seen other people mounting horses that are huge and they are like 3" tall lol.

I just kinda jump once put my left hand on her withers and right hand where the saddle should be. When I jump I put my left elbow over the the other side of her neck to hook me in place and pull me up :D hope I helped

Or you can stand on something......like a bucket or a chair or a fence. Or have someone boost you up.

I use a step stool that is tall enough that I can literally swing my leg over my horses back and just sit. I have never been able to mount bareback from the ground.

I usually swing on like the second person. Although you usually are more graceful!

I usually mount from a fence or a picnic table. Whatever tall-ish object happens to be handy.

I teach all my horses to walk up to any kind of obstacle that can be used for mounting; barrels, fences, etc. Yes, it's inconvenient, especially if I have to get off on a trail, but there's always a down tree, or rock somewhere, haha! I have no bounce in my joints, so I can't jump up on a horse from the ground anymore...although I used to be able to mount from the ground onto any height horse bareback.

I taught my horse to stand still while I run and jump because he's grown too tall for me to jump off the ground as we used to. Also, one time he and a shorter pony were standing next to each other so I jumped on the smaller pony, stood up, and then got on him from there, but I wouldn't recommend that one.
