"PurpleMonkeyWrench Hmmm have to check out Qbabys! My only complaint really about riding in plain old jeans is that it makes it difficult to mount from the ground especially when your sweaty and your jeans stick to you and makes it impossible to get your foot in the stirrup lol "
Well funny you say that, because we have purchased a collaspable two step step stool. Its great. Doesn't take up much room, take it out to mount the horse, and yay!! no trying to get you foot in the stirrup that seems to have shortened between you saddling up, and preparing to get on. I'm sure my legs shrink just before I get on..hehe.
This step stool was cheap in a hardware store. I also use it as my western saddle stand (I don't have a proper one yet so have to make do) and it also works great for that. Its just high enough off the ground to allow the fenders to fall nicely
