…there’s a way, especially when you have a sweet, patient mare.
Horse Nation disclaimer: we strongly encourage all readers to use an ASTM-certified helmet when mounted, especially for youth.
While this method of mounting may not be Pony Club-approved, there’s something to be said for some good old-fashioned ingenuity and playing around with our horses. After all, who hasn’t mucked around out in the paddock or the corral doing some goofy stuff with our horses just to see if we can? It’s practically a rite of passage.
So no, we don’t recommend maybe making a habit of getting on your horse this way, even if it IS a big, patient draft mare… but we do have to hand it to young Cody here for figuring out a pretty unique method.
Cody has his own methods

Draft horses: the giant horsey angels we probably don’t deserve but love to have around.
