    Received my solo-ride yesterday. Brilliant! Wonderful design and well made. I order the XL, but it’s too small for my horse. Fully extended it’s about 6″ below his withers and the stirrup is still up above my waist (and I’m 5′ 7). But no worries, I am going to add more strap to the stirrup side. Just wanted you to know this is one of the best things I’ve ever seen. Good job!!

    Product Review By Sonja Beale, Canadian Horse Journal
    The Solo-Ride arrived in a box covered with pictorial instructions, and included a fanny pack (with lots of pockets) in which to store the Solo-Ride while riding. The Solo-Ride itself is comprised of thick nylon webbing that creates the support system, a folding stirrup that is made of lightweight aluminum, and a padded strap that can be used for additional padding either on the wither or under the leg. The nylon webbing adjusts in two places and allows for maximum customization for different size horses. The Solo-Ride loops around one leg and over the back/wither and hangs down with a stirrup.

    After setting the Solo-Ride up on my horse, I spent a few minutes putting my weight in and out of the stirrup. My horse is still green but quickly adjusted to the new pressure and I was able to mount within five minutes.

    I made my first attempt while my horse was already tacked up. With the Solo-Ride lying to the right side of my stirrup (similar to using a step-stool) I put my right foot into the Solo-Ride’s stirrup, then my left foot into my saddle’s stirrup which allowed me to mount easily. I used the padded band over the cantle to protect the leather from the nylon webbing. For bareback, I lengthened both of the adjustable straps so I could reach the stirrup from the ground, and again I mounted easily, then folded the Solo-Ride into its waist pack.

    I am excited to use it on the trail!

    I really like the Solo ride mounting aide. I took my old mare out today with a soft bareback pad and the solo ride mounting aide and had a blast! I used to ride bare back all of the time but now I’m just getting too old to hop up so this product is just what I needed to continue riding without worrying where to get off and on. Thank you for inventing this! I love it!

    Love my Solo.. 16.4 hands horse… works great.. be sure to practice in the arena and do refresher IN THE ARENA .. cause when you need it out on trail you want it to be old news to your horse.

    I use the mounting block even with a saddle, or find a stump or hill …I am thrilled and will highly recommend it! Thanks for inventing such a helpful aid Sincerely, Colleen
