Remounting. The trail I usually ride at has really nice mounting blocks that are just perfect for old, short, heavy people like me - I can just swing a leg over and slip into the saddle, no muss, no fuss, no straining for either me or my horse. Unfortunately, they are only at the trail head. The trails themselves are kept clear of debris, so there are no convenient tree stumps I can use. I tried using the side of a ravine...that turned out to be a disaster!
