Ok I have to ask, what's a randonnee (sorry I have an American laptop so no accents)
Is it a trail ride?

I SO want to do something like this but need to get Robbia fit first but I'm working on that now. Think I need something a bit closer and shorter to start with. Are these quite casual affairs, do you know?

I haven't done one yet but I imagine there would be various levels of rider and horses / pony's turn up so you could choose where you are comfortable , with this particular one the outward leg consists of walk trot and canter and the return after the picnic just steady cool down
Hopefully some of our members have already done these Question

Well if I'm going to go on a trek then I am going to need something and I have seen three now.
a. is basically another stirrup but longer and it says to put your right foot in the stirrup(aid) and then QUICKLY put your left foot in your normal stirrup and mount as per normal! Sounds easy but I foresee a problem with the 'quickly' bit and think I may even end up backwards! Embarassed
b. is like a mini tripod stool with a cord attached and you just use it like a mounting block and pull up the stool (which I presume must fold) and there you go. Again sounds easy but I think I may end up doing 0 to 60 faster than a ferrari when Robbia sees me hauling that one up What a Face
c. is what you said ...a rope ladder......and quite long too! Shocked sorry can't even begin to go there!

yeah, I think option 'a' is probably the best for me and I think also it is something you could make yourself anyway as there is not much to it!

Smile Yes, it's cheap too but I'm not convinced...........I need to see someone use it 'cos after studying it closely it looks like the piece that goes through the stirrup basically closes off the stirrup stopping you putting anymore than just your toe in it ! also I'm thinking that looks quite close to the stirrup and am I going to be left hanging there trying to get my left leg .....................oh I don't know pale
Let me know if you get one and can I come and watch? Very Happy

must admit I'm not too convinced either with that one , I wander whether you have to start with the wrong foot and sort of climb on and end up with the feet correctly in the stirrups then you've got the faff of trying to get it off I suppose

Have you seen those things they have on the back of delivery lorries? The delivery men just stand there on a small platform and push a button to go up or down! Now THAT would be more like it............ Very Happy failing that I'll have to try to teach Robbia to kneel Rolling Eyes
anyway I'm determined to go on a trek regardless. Where there's a will there's a way!

Thanks Rosemary Smile , that one looks workable with Western style as the stuff is chunkier to accomodate devices .
I guess I'll have to keep leapfrogging on geek

- après midi , PTV ( parcours en terrains variées ).
- fin d'apm , élection du bureau de l'association.


pique nique sur place possible.

Pour l'instant deux chevaux de proprio sont réservé à Mathilde et à Charlène , et il reste une jument en attente de cavalière ou cavalier .

J'attends par retour vos réponses
- sur votre présence
- sur vos propositions de prêt de vos chevaux
- sur vos candidatures pour monter un cheval
- ou tout simplement pour nous faire part de votre intérêt de faire partie de notre association et d'être present pour l'élection du bureau.


Cavalièrement votre.

Re: the extra stirrup for mounting. My OH made one and it is very simple and effective. I am vertically challenged and have short legs to boot so mounting my 15.2 hh boy causes me problems too, so saw these stirrup thingys on ebay, and OH came to the rescue and made one. I can put my foot in the normal stirrup and as soon as I'm settled just lift my foot up and take out the extra step stirrup. And its small enough to fit in a bump bag in case you need it on a trek.

Hope this helps.
