Mounting with Energy

Bounce up and down beside your horse as if you were going to jump on. This step ensures that your horse will not be alarmed by the movement of your foot as it moves to the stirrup or the when you step up in the stirrup. This step should not be an issue if all the previous work from on the mounting block is good.

Success Tips:

- Ensure all the previous work is good.

Common Problems/Mistakes:

- Skipping this step.
- Not ensuring all of the previous work is good
- Not being aware of thresholds.
- Jumping with too much energy to begin.
