Home Faq Get on correctly with a stool

Get off right?

The horse's back and the saddle should be well protected, right? We think so too! It is also important that you keep this in mind when boarding. Most riders among us develop their own way of mounting over time. We quickly get into the habit of doing this a certain way. But who among us really thinks about how we get on our horse? Are you perhaps putting too much weight on one side of the saddle or are you falling into the saddle? These are a few important questions to consider when boarding. To protect both the horse's back and the saddle, it is advisable to mount your horse with a mounting aid. You can do this easily by using the stepping on with stool or with a step.
