Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A mounting block, horse block, or in Scots a loupin'-on-stane is an assistance for mounting and dismounting a horse or cart, especially for the young, elderly or infirm. They were especially useful for women riding sidesaddle, allowing a horse to be mounted without a loss of modesty. They were frequently located outside churches or kirks for the use of parishioners attending services, etc. In Yorkshire some were built at the top of steep lanes were the rider would remount after leading his horse up the slope. A modern mounting block, and cat for scale.show more
