ride the snake

nerodroid replied to your post “unusual mounts are LEGIT one of my favorite fantasy tropes, ask me how…”

how would a snake mount be ridden

Oh boy the ol flexible spine problem… probably the only way you COULD ride a snake is belly-down, with less of a stiff saddle than a harness with grips. Maybe a hard seat to pivot on depending on the snake angle. Honestly the main issue here would be keeping your saddle from sliding down the snake’s body as it moved…

Having a flexible spine is also an issue with riding stuff like cats and dogs, where the only moderately stable point on their back is right above the shoulder blades. You’d essentially always have to sit jockey style, leaning towards the neck for support. Also no matter what you did, riding a cat at full tilt would be bumpy as shit, i recommend maybe strapping your legs to the saddle so your crotch doesn’t get pounded into oblivion.

And the real problem with riding any large predator: they’re ridiculously expensive to feed and spend most of their time sleeping as they digest meals. Also they might eat you.


We love Lisa Hanawalt’s work on BoJack Horseman, so we asked her to create our next video for #LY2D - #HangontotheNight!
