Mounting from the ground bareback has been one of my goals for years. I'm a reasonably well regarded horseman. I should be able to do this! Maybe if I stand her in a little ditch.
She's really been very good about all of this. Of course I'm not getting any younger and it becomes less and less likely I'll do this as time passes.
Whatever the case for the time being I'll just have to use rocks. Logs. Milk crates. And...well..mounting blocks!
It's not like it's a big problem. It's more the abstract business of coming to terms with the realization there are some things I just can't do.
