This is truly a fun exercise and especially great for those riders that need to mount out on the trail with assistance. Your horse will step right over to you as you cue him from a stump, rock or fence rail. You will not be stuck in the arena any longer for fear of getting back into the saddle.
Ken teaches a 16-hand horse to gently step to the fence and mounting block. Missy, five feet tall and owner, greatly struggles getting into the saddle out on the trail. Ken begins by teaching you and the horse to take one step, and then two, next three and finally he comes all the way over to the mounting block. It is practical and easy. Absolutely everyone can teach and find success with this exercise.
This is a quote from one of our viewers: "I just wanted you to know what a great impact your program on mounting from a mounting block has made for me. Having a hip replaced made it hard to do, and watching your program changed all that for me. Now I can mount any place, any time, at home or on the trail. My horse will let me use a tree
stump, picnic table or even a fire pit to mount from."
