Question Can i keep this horse on my land?

I live in the woods. It has two hills making it a valley with a small stream at the bottom. I have enough flat land for a run in shed. I know a regular horse can't be on this land due to tripping or something. But what about a Mule?

I want to ride so bad! Just don't have the land for a real horse and not the money for boarding!

I figured donkeys are sure footed, how about mules!!
Thank you!

Just how sloped is this land? Like a cliff?

Maybe you should get a mountain goat instead....

Lol its not like you need a rope to walk. Like I can easily walk down it with no problem. I just figured horses had more difficulties?
And there is trees.

Any chance you can post a photo of the land? If it's not treacherous, most healthy, sound horses can navigate hills just fine. Older, unsound ones, not so much.

I also wonder just how steep these hills are... My mare lives in a crazy steep pasture and does just fine, better than fine, actually.

Here's a video of her, cantering downhill, in her steep pasture. And, she's 27 so a younger horse would most likely have even less of a "hard" time.

My horses are all on a hill, the yearling is on a slightly flatter paddock, but the thoroughbred and welsh are on a fairly steep hill and have no problems with it.

Its a little messy due to fall weather. This picture is taken from the top of my driveway looking down onto the flat land. There is a flattened road going down there too to make it easier to walk down 073.jpg

Is the ground of good quality, meaning not totaly mud and not horribly rocky? If so, you'd probably be fine.

Its not muddy at all, surprisingly. When we moved here I figured it would be, due to rain run off. But its fine! Stream is rocky though.

Thank you all!!

donkey, mule, woods
