Young riders are rarely at a loss for creative means to mount their horses, whether that might be a questionable fence rail, a handy chair, or a flimsy bucket. These are the riders who also may be the least dissuaded when such methods leave them flat on their backsides after their horse decides to have nothing to do with these crazy mounting aids. For both the rider’s safety and the proper manner of training your horse to comply with your most important goal in riding, getting on the horse, there is no better mounting aid than the mounting block.
When mounting a horse, it is a moment when you are halfway between the ground and midair. Using a mounting block is a safe, convenient, and stress-free way to successfully get on your horse without throwing either horse or rider off balance or putting any strain on your horse’s back. The mounting block also makes grooming easier when you can easily reach those areas that are hard to get to from ground level, and they are useful in reaching higher storage shelves in the tack room. A mounting block from Tack Trunks offers you more than just two or three steps up. They also serve as lockable tack storage making it easier to have the things you need when grooming your horse as well as helping to maintain a tidy tack room.
You can choose a mounting block from Tack Trunks with either two or three steps depending on your height or younger riders who need that extra step up. Built from high-quality, durable materials, our sturdy vinyl mounting blocks include slip-resistant steps to prevent slip and fall injuries. For elderly riders or those who have mobility impairments, a strong mounting block is essential to get riders safely aboard their mounts without unnecessary risk of injury.
The top step itself is the lid to the internal storage compartment that is fitted to receive a padlock for more security. Keep sprays, brushes, hoof picks, polish, or other handy grooming tools within easy reach to maintain your horse’s health and to look good for that trail ride or next hunter/jumper class. With your own mounting block, you never have to look for a spotter or someone to give you a hand up. You can rely on having a stable surface from which to achieve a safe distance to easily get on your horse without the danger associated with the struggle that can ensue from trying to mount from the ground.
