Let’s Discuss: Mounting from a high mounting block

Last week, we showed you a video from Centaur Biomechanics shot at 300 frames per second of a woman mounting her horse from the ground. Now here’s a video of the same woman mounting her horse from a high mounting block.

Click here to watch the ground mounting video for comparison. What do you notice? The saddle clearly slides much less when the woman mounts from a high mounting block, as opposed to the large amount of torque that’s caused when she ground mounts.

Does this video change your mind about mounting from the ground? Weigh in, HN!
