Capture the Saddle: The Mounting Block Lesson teaches great mounting block manners—plus it sets the stage for single-rein riding.
The lesson begins with a ground work exercise that connects your horse’s hips to your rein. You’ll know your horse will have great brakes before you ever get in the saddle.
Next we transfer this lesson to the mounting block. This serves as a final safety check before you get on. Great mounting block manners lead to great manners under saddle.
We then use the connections you’ve created to introduce your horse to “Riding on a Triangle”—single rein riding. You’ll learn how to use the work you began on the ground to straighten out a not-very-forward, wiggle-worm of a horse, and to start a young horse.
