Colt Creek’s new mounting block

Non-horsey people probably think we’re a little nuts to be so happy about a mounting block.  They don’t realize how much easier it is on a horse’s back and withers when a rider uses the block; we as riders, especially as we grow a bit older and less agile, certainly appreciate the mechanical boost and safety.  So to see this new, heavy (2000 pounds!) 4-step concrete mounting block at the Colt Creek State Park’s equestrian campground is a beautiful thing to behold at the start of our riding season.  Many, many thanks to Lannie Thomas, owner of Leesburg Concrete, and Triple B Riding Club for donating it.
