Question 1- yes i think the standard freemount does count as one of the the three mounts required in level three.
question 2- i think the mount you described would be classed as a half suicide or half jump mount, because you’re holding onto the seat the whole time, but i think landing with seat out front first is fine.
question 3- yep i think this does count as a different mount becasue it is different.
i’m not entirely sure on these but im sure someone will either back me up or correct me.
A roll back mount isn’t in the standard skill list as a seperate mount, so some testers won’t allow it to count as diffrent from the regular freemount. The lower the level the less strict people are with the variety of mounts, so it might pass anyway.

Word from John Foss has it that the rollback mount and the static
mount are variations of the same thing and hence officially don’t
count as separate mounts. Now if JF is not an authority then who is?
On the original question 2: For a proper jump mount you have to finish
sitting on the seat. In fact, Jump mount to sitting on the seat and a
modified Jump mount to seat in front might (just MIGHT) count as two

Riding bwd means riding backward, This is Standard Skill number 2.
2a is riding backward in a straight line, about 8 meters.
2b is riding backward in a circle, staying between the 4m and 8m circles.
2c is riding backward in a figure 8, circle diameters between ~4-6m with the middle of the figure passing through the 1/2m center circle.
If we would have gone to NAUCC and watched the Standard Skill competition, you would have become painfully aware of all this…
I’m gonna change the links so that you don’t have to put on the /number/ at the end, maybe in a week, so these links might go bad.
I’ll try to include a link to a pdf of the page which shows the layout of the performance area and the rules for Standard Skill.
As long as this is a level question thread, I might as well ask mine:
When it says demonstrate 4 types of mounts for level four, can those just be the three mounts you did in level three and one new one? Or do you have to learn 4 completely new mounts?
Good, I doubt there are even enough mounts to finish them all if we had to keep learning that many new ones!
But that’s another one if I can add the rollback mount and the static mount as seperate ones. I have six, then. Rollback, static, side, backwards, jump, and I’m trying to learn the rolling mount.
