Nifty Fold-Up Stool For Mounting Horses
If you or someone you know is on the shorter side, this folding 10-in. stool will make it a lot easier to mount a horse.
  The step comes with three rubber-tipped aluminum legs that provide a firm base of support, even on slightly uneven terrain. Once you're mounted on the horse you use an attached cord to pull the step up from the ground. Then you fold the legs in and store unit in a saddle bag. Weighs only 1 1/2 lbs.
  Another advantage of the step is it's easier on the horse, because you're not plunking down as hard on its back or pulling the saddle over sideways as you lift yourself up.
  According to the company, when you use the step a horse that stands 16 hands high will seem no taller than a pony that stands only 13.2 hands.
  Sells for $39.95 plus S&H. A saddle pack is also available. Sells for $16.95 plus S&H.
