Horse Mounting Blocks

Martello Plastics have now designed a range of portable mounting blocks used by single riders at shows or in the yard, but the majority of our blocks are purchased and used by RDA groups (Riding For The Disabled) from riders that may need some assistance to mount through to larger blocks where 2 helpers can manoeuvre a disabled rider onto a platform to mount safely and easily.

 


 

The main benefits of a Martello mounting block are:

 • Lightweight and portable
 • Strong
 • Weather resistant
 • Easy to clean
 • Requires no painting or varnishing or maintenance
 • Surface on treads is textured

Mounting blocks are also beneficial to the horses well being:

• Relieves pressure on the horses back
• Stops twisting of the saddle tree

All blocks are available in a range of colours.

Range Available

 

Mini Block - External Step

There are two alternatives with this model - either an external step or internal step. These small lightweight mounting blocks are ideal to carry around the yard or take to shows.  They were developed from an idea suggested by a veteran rider!!

External step W485 x L600 x H540


 

Mini Block - Internal Step

The internal step was produced to save space when space is a premium in the horsebox or estate car when travelling to shows or the field. The internal space when upside down could also be used for storage. Mounting from the correct height relieves the tension and stress from the horses back.
 

Internal step W485 x L475 x H540

 



 

Standard Block

Martello Plastics have been producing the standard block for over 25 years and we have now increased our range to cover most riders needs. The standard block can be used by a single rider or a riding school. This standard block is approximately 20kg and has strong coated metal carrying handles.
 

Overall dimensions W660 x L1220 x H534

 



 

Large Block

The large block is approximately 25kgs with strong coated metal handles and has a longer top platform. This makes it ideal for an assistant to stand on as well as the rider.
 

Overall dimensions W660 x L1765 x H534

 



 

Double Block

Our double block weighs approximately 36kgs with strong coated metal handles and has a wider top platform and a little more height. Again, this is ideal for more than one person to stand on. Could take up to 3 persons at a time.  Can easily be carried by two people.
 

Overall dimensions W1650 x L1165 x H600
 



 

Two Piece Block

The two piece block comes apart to ease transporting and includes strong, coated, metal handles on both halves. High quality metal clasps hold the system together when in use. This has the highest platform. Ideal for more than one person to stand on. Approximate total weight 46kgs.  Can easily be carried by two people.
 

Dimensions W1050 x L1165 x H720 + W950 x L930 x H534
 



 

Extra Step

After many requests for increased height we have recently produced an additional step. These steps are available for the 'Large' and the 'Double' blocks to provide a greater height from which to mount. The picture shows the 'Large' block with the extra step.
