Horse mounting platform – transportable

Horse mounting platform - transportableMandy had been advised by her physiotherapist that horse riding would be beneficial for her multiple sclerosis problems, but she needed a platform to mount her horse. The platform was to be transportable so she could ride in different places.

The solution was to make a thirty inch high platform, two feet by three feet, with a handrail. Wheels were mounted on the rear so that the handrail could be used to haul the platform up the slope of a horse box. Supports, to prevent the whole platform from toppling over if the client fell against the handrail, were also added and were hinged to be stowable. To minimise weight, the steps were made separate.

Mandy is now able to mount and dismount in safety using the handrail provided, and is very happy with the result.
