On what side of the horse does one mount and dismount?
Asked in Care of Horses
On what side of the horse do you mount?
There are many different opinions on which side of the horse one should mount. Some say only mount on the left side, some say it it important to train your horse on both sides equally and therefore mount alternately on each side. Remember that horses have two sides of their brain which learn independently. Most agree however that mounting from a mounting block saves strain on a horses spine by decreasing the amount of weight placed on one side of the horses body. you should always mount your horse on the left side. some people mount on the right but the left side is more "proper" and or "correct" way to mount a horse. It doesn't matter what side. Mount on what side you and the horse are comfortable with. It is traditional to mount and dismount a horse from the left side the reasoning behind this goes back to when people carried swords, the swords mostly hung on the left hip they couldn't mount a right side because the sword got in the way so became traditional to mount from the left. in English and western riding you do everything from the left side otherwise known as the near side. Sometimes things are done from the off side too but less often. It's just a good thing to accustom your horse to(having things done to it on both sides). You get on a horse on the left side which is known as the near side.

Asked in Care of Horses
What side of a horse is most commonly known as the near side?
The near side is always the left. This is because its "near" the side you get on. You ALWAYS mount from the left, due to tradition formed in the age of knights and siege warfare. They wore their swords on their right side for easy reach, therefore their right leg could not bend to mount, forcing them to mount from the left. A: Actually, you should be able to mount a horse from either side. A horse that only allows you to mount from one side is not a very well trained horse. Horses should be trained to do everything from either side. Edit: response: well yes, it is important for the horse to allow both, especially in case of emergency. however mounting from the left is most common and the traditional way

If you are looking for shortcuts: F6: Binoculars (If you have one) F7: Mount/Dismount Note: If you just logged in, and you try F7, it won't work because the first time you have to choose which horse to mount. After that, you can just click F7 and you will dismount. If you want to mount again, just click F7 again. There's also a shortcut to grabbing items the shortcut for grabbing items is F8 . and there are no cheats sorry :(

How do you jump of gryphon in World of Warcraft?
If you are referring to a Gryphon Mount, such as the one you can use once you have the flying skill, there are three options: 1) Dismount by clicking the mount's button on your action bar (assuming you put it there) or by clicking "dismount" on the mount page in your spellbook. 2) Dismount by right-clicking the flying mount in your buffs. 3) Casting any spell if you have "dismount on cast" active from your interface options. If you are referring to the Gryphon mount you fly on when going from flightpoint to flightpoint, you cannot jump off until you reached your destination. If you want to abort your flight earlier, the only way is to log out and then log in again. Upon login, the gryphon will fly to the next destination and then drop you off.

What is it called when you sit on one side of a horse?
Asked in Horses
Why do you mount and dismount horses from their left side?
Originally, mounting was done on the left side so that cavalry soldiers wouldn't foul their sheathed swords as they were mounting. Because men used to carry swords, and a right-handed swordsman carries his scabbard on the left side. it would get in the way if he tried to mount from the right! There is no real reason you have to mount your horse from the left side. It actually originated as an old habit developed by medieval knights because they had a long sword hanging down the left side, so mounting their horse from the same side that their sword was on was the only option they had. Today, you can mount a horse from either side. I believe the Native Americans mounted their horses from the right side, or the "off" side, instead of the "on" side which is the left. You mount from the left because it is traditional. The left handed mount has it's origins in the cavalry. A right handed soldier would wear their sword on their left hip. To prevent the sword from hitting the horse and possibly scaring it, they began to mount from the left side. However nowadays it is best to train a horse to mount from both sides. It originated from when soldiers had to mount horses. To avoid the swords hitting the horses flanks and spooking them the soldiers always mounted from the left (also called the near side.). It has been tradition since the Indians did it. Some cowboys mount from both sides for a faster mount and dismount. The reason why horses are mounted on the left side goes a long way back. Originally, in the Middle Ages, the knights had their swords on their left sides so that they could pull them out with their right hand. They did not want to stab their horses by accident while mounting on the right side so they always mounted on the left side. This continued to be done and it has just stayed as how horses are trained. However, when training a horse or pony, it is always good the make sure that they are comfortable with mounting on either side in case of an accident. In medieval times, swords were the weapon of choice. Most people are right handed, and left-handedness was extremely uncommon back then. If you are right-handed, you pull the sword from the scabbard most easily if it's on the left side of your body. It's hard to swing your leg and a sword over a horse, so it became common to mount from the left side, because then you stick your right leg (the one without the sword next to it) over the horse to mount. The practice never really fell out of style, although many horses now are trained to mount from both sides, the left simply remains the more popular side. because horses are trained to expect someone to mount from that side . it also is said to date back to old times when men wore swords on their sides, the sword would be in the way if they mounted from the right In Medevil times when knights carried swords, they were carried on the right side so they could be used with the right arm. If they were to mount their horses from the left side, the swords would not be in the way. Not much has changed since the way people rode back then, so today you are supposed to mount a horse from the left. While most people still mount from the left, it's best to train both yourself and your horse to mount from BOTH sides. There may come a time when a situation arises when you will need to mount from the right. You want to train the horse as well as practice mounting from both sides NOW. Don't wait until you are out on a trail ride and the left stirrup strap breaks, or you sprain or break your leg, and can not lift yourself onto the horse from the left. There may arise any number of other situations that require mounting from the right. A well trained horse is trained from both sides, which also trains the horses's mind to to be comfortable being mounted from both sides. Horses always need to be trained on both sides for *everything*, because their minds are such that each side requires a different part of their brain. Training a horse to mount from both sides could be a life saver. I know that first hand, because I once tripped on a log and broke my ankle while camping as part of a trail ride. Although I was with another person, they could not lift me into the saddle, and I could not tolerate the pain of mounting from the left, even with this persons's help. I had to mount from the right to get in the saddle and ride my horse to get help. Fortunately my horse was trained on both sides. It could have been really bad if the horse spooked and threw me while I was mounting from the right. Ever since that day, I am a strong advocate of training all horses to be mounted from both sides. You may be required to mount from the left at a horse show, but in informal settings, mount from whichever side suits your fancy, and alternate to keep your horse familiar with mounting from both sides.

How do you confidently mount and dismount a horse?
stand on the left side of the horse facing the horse. put your left foot in the sturrup and hold the reins in one hand, the back on the saddle in the right hand. bounce a few times and swing your self into the saddle and settle down lightly so as not to hurt the horse's back. if you are mounting from a mounting block, same steps only no bouncing because you are closer to the saddle. and if you are mounting bareback, same thing, but with out the saddle and you might want to jump or vault onto the horse. same order for mounting western too. also, after you have mounted, make sure the horse walks away from the mounting block so the horse doesnt get a sore back from standing too long with a rider aboard. if the horse gets a sore back, ride her/him lightly. the horse will show this if the horse rears while you settle in the saddle.

Why can't get get on a horse from its right side?
The practice of mounting only from the left side of the horse dates back to when soldiers wore swords. Since most people are right handed, the sword was worn on the left, making it difficult, if not impossible to mount from the right. Today, there is nothing to prevent anyone from training their horse to be mounted from either side, in fact, in order to become a search and rescue member, your horse MUST be able to be mounted and packed from either side. All of the horses I've owned and trained could be mounted from either side, and one of them taught herself to crouch for me.
