A mount may refer to a horse intended for riding. See horse.


A mount is an attachment point for equipment to vehicles. Mounts are usually made to enable the object mounted there to be moved in relation to the vehicle, but still remain affixed. Notable uses of mounts are for weapons and cameras, where the mount instead of the operator supports the weight of the equipment. See also turret, hard point and pintel.


Mount is a position in grappling, where one person sits on the chest of another. This is a favourable position to the uppermost combatant, as he may deliver strikes to the head of the other with ease. In submission fighting, this position often yields victory for the uppermost person unless the disadvantaged party makes a reversal in short order.
