Dee, yesterday, I saw on one of the sites, posted in the tack section, about your favorite online tack shop. There was a portable mounting block. It was a little 3 legged stool, with a cord, step up, pull it up, collapse it, put in saddle bags! I thought...i need that... Lol

I pack my TP, bung fodder, crevice paper! I like a good scrubbin if I need it!
I have a t-shirt that my friends gave me: Roll of TP = Friend.....Ivy leaves = Foe
They got it for me after an incident, TRUE STORY! TMI I know....

Dee I was going to suggest that too, have a chain so you can pull it up when done, which it probably already has.

Dancer was a perfect angel when I tried to remount her from the ravine bank. The ground gave way - and I fell underneath her - right in front of about 20 people - talk about embarassing! I also broke my left foot and sprained my right knee. With so many people around, I didn't dare cry, although it hurt like H%$@!

The little step stools and mounting blocks you can buy are way to short for me - I'm only 5'1" on a good day, and Dancer is 15HH. Even if I were strong enough to climb up from using a too short mounting block, my stupid belly fat and humongous thighs get in the way!

I did call my daughter this afternoon - I'm going to start on my New Year's resolution a little early. I've GOT to get this excess weight off - I really want to ride without worrying myself silly about hurting my horse!

I have a friend who didn't realize what leaves she was using to clean herself with one time. She spent nearly a month in the hospital between the poison ivy and the subsequent staph infection!

Dancer wouldn't care - she's pretty good about not being spooky or nervous (she never moved when I fell underneath her feet). Sadly, that little easy mount wouldn't work for me - it's way too short - I need a mounting block at least 36" high, and that's still a bit too short.
