All the ones I've mapped have been - often before and after bridges and 
tunnels, so that you can lead Dobbin on foot rather than risk banging 
your head or risk being thrown off onto the motorway when a car horn 
scares a horse.

As I already mentioned on talk-gb the lua code I use for rendering these 
things is:

-- Horse mounting blocks
    if (( keyvalues["amenity"]   == "mounting_block"       ) or
        ( keyvalues["bridleway"] == "mounting_block"       ) or
        ( keyvalues["historic"]  == "mounting_block"       ) or
        ( keyvalues["horse"]     == "mounting_block"       ) or
        ( keyvalues["horse"]     == "mounting block"       ) or
        ( keyvalues["amenity"]   == "mounting_step"        ) or
        ( keyvalues["amenity"]   == "mounting_steps"       ) or
        ( keyvalues["amenity"]   == "horse_dismount_block" )) then
       keyvalues["man_made"] = "mounting_block"

that corresponds to the examples that I found in the UK via taginfo.  
Some of these make more sense than others (e.g. I'm not convinced of 
"horse" or "bridleway" as a key in this context).

Best Regards,
