I have the same question - here's one on a mountaintop, which is set
up so that persons with moderate to severe mobility impairments can
mount a horse from a wheelchair and visit that mountain.

Without the platforms and bridle path, it's inaccessible to anyone
other than relatively fit hikers. (It's about a 13 km hike, with maybe
700 m of elevation gain.)

I don't think I'd label this a 'mounting block' but I have no idea
what to call it.

One platform is visible in orthos at
<URL:https://orthos.dhses.ny.gov/?Extent=-8268174.470549698,5188551.1299386695,-8267646.875905407,5188771.184977064&Layers=2018_cache,2017_cache,2016_cache,2015_cache,2014_cache,2013_cache>
and the other on the north side of the clearing at
<URL:https://orthos.dhses.ny.gov/?Extent=-8263469.053693014,5187574.095985929,-8262941.459048723,5187794.151024323&Layers=2018_cache,2017_cache,2016_cache,2015_cache,2014_cache,2013_cache>.
The other structures at the summit are a fire tower, the fire
observer's cabin (unstaffed since the 1990's, now preserved as a
historic site) a picnic table and an outhouse.
