Mounting blocks

Hi, what type of mounting block do you use when travelling out?
I've just bought a new trailer and will be looking to ride out places but wondered what people use to mount whilst out, my boy is 16'2 so no chance of getting on from ground!
Any hints or tips gratefully received.

Re: Mounting blocks

I use either the ramp, or a wooden grooming kit box which is also made to stand on. I've had it for years and years, but I'm sure you can still get plastic versions of same.

Re: Mounting blocks

my tack box is one of those on tool boxes on wheels with a pull out handle..... good size and sturdy enough to be a good mounting block. I use it and my lass is only 14.1 ;)
