    I suppose that not eating so much food helps too. That's what I need to do. Quit eating food.............

    But food is so very very good. And I like beer too which doesn't help with the empty cals lol.

    When I quit drinking beer, I lost a lot of weight. I guess ice-cream should be next on my hit list............

    Celeste-- I will get my mom to buy your book cause she has a kindle and she loves animals and she also has a book published on kindle called "Molly Eiderdowns journal" By Elaine Berrier.

    I always used to mount from the ground, can even swing up bareback and my flexibility is second to none (I kickbox). However when I started with a new instructor, she told me not to, use a mounting block. Easier on your horse's back and easier on your tack, makes sense, & in your case, easier on you.

    Waresbare, it is easier on the horse to use a mounting block, but what are you supposed to do 5 miles from nowhere?

    Lol, true enough. Do like my hubby does when he rides my horse, 16 HH & hubby has no flexibility, use a stump or a hill or try your ****est not to have to get off!

    I don't mount from the ground. What would be really cool is if I could train Sky to lay down for me while I get on, camel style!

    I don't think that's likely to happen anytime soon so I'll stick to mounting blocks, fences, upside down buckets, benches, hay bails, patio steps, etc.

    Shhh about the patio steps.. my BM would SHOOT me..
