Correct Mounting

In order to maintain the high quality of a Passier saddle, it is important to mount correctly. The widespread practice of reaching for the saddle cantle to pull oneself up with the right hand inevitably leads to a twisted saddle tree. Therefore, when mounting one should reach the right hand over the seat of the saddle while on the ground. Even better is the use of a mounting block so that the back of the horse and the saddle are not strained. The wrong and the right way of mounting are shown in these two films.
