Frequently Asked Questions

Solo-Ride is a Portable Mounting Aid that helps you mount your horse. Solo-Ride can be used to mount Bareback or as a Step up to your Saddle Stirrup.

Solo-Ride was created for any rider. It is adjustable to fit most horses and people, from a small pony up to a large horse.

If your horse moves or begins to walk off, simply step down and remove your foot from the stirrup and wait for the horse to stand still before beginning again.

Begin by reading enclosed instructions. Also have a look at our videos at the top of this page of Solo-Ride being used. We also have the instructions posted on our website, along with pictures of each step.

  • As a Step up to your Saddle Stirrup – Set the Solo-Ride stirrup approximately halfway between the ground and your saddle stirrup. Step into Solo-Ride with your right foot and then your left foot into your saddle stirrup. Once mounted simply undo the snap allowing it to fall, gather up and tuck into waist pack or your own saddle bags for next time.
  • Mounting Bareback – Step into the Solo-Ride with your left foot as usual. Once mounted simply undo the snap allowing it to fall, gather up and tuck into waist pack or your own saddle bags for next time.

You can use your Solo-Ride® anytime, anywhere you need to get back on your horse.
