Okay. I’ll admit it. I have trouble mounting from the ground with a treed saddle. The combination of aging (my impending birthday makes me feel older), residual stiffness from last year’s fall, and Zelda’s large size conspire against me. I have a three step mounting block (bought after my injury), which is perfect and otherwise I’m good at spotting tree stumps and large rocks.
However, there are times when you MUST mount from the ground. This looks like a workable solution. I’ll try it. Soon. But boy, that saddle looks small and high up when I’m standing next to Zelda.
