Mounting/Dismounting make sure to always mount or dismount your horse in the designated areas. Before proceeding to that area, always make sure the area is clear before you proceed. You might be in someone else's way while you stand waiting for others to mount....particularly if in an arena. Always give one more check to your girth, on both sides before you mount your horse; and pull down your stirrups on both sides.
