Mounting block

I'm reving myself up to get a moveable mounting block. I checked out Stateline and there are three (3 step):
Horseman's Pride 21 inch wide tread $84.99
Sportote 16 inch wide tread $84.99
Burlington 15-5/8 inch tread $118.14 (has storage)
High Country 18 inch tread $79.04

Good reviews on all of them. Anyone buy one of these plastic mounting blocks?

I have a blue 2 step that I purchased about 6 years ago. Very durable and light weight. Its hollow on the inside and I guess if you wanted to you could store a few things in there. I think mine came from stateline

I have a 3 step with storage and a two step. I love them both and use them all of the time.

For my trailer I have a tack box/mounting block combo that I use. Bid Dee's is where I got my larger ones and I got my smaller one for the trailer at the MidWest Horse fair

My son uses a 2-step mounting block, plastic.

He rides a 15.1 horse and that puts him with only needing to lift his foot a few inches to the stirrup height.

Don't know if you need a 3-step one...
3 step is 22.5" high and weigh 22 pounds
2-step is 19" high and weighs 14 pounds....

Costs a lot more for just a few inches gained and if you want the storage space...but/and it sure weighs a lot more....


Happy Shopping...

Since having both hips replaced and passing 65, I use a mounting block. Mine came from TSC, and is the two step. I find the 3 step a little unstable or "tippy", but that may be because of my weight.
