Has anyone have any experience with mules in english disciplines? I don't know much about mules in general, but I saw the cutest one for sale... so then I started googling

I have no experience with jumping mules, but I have heard it said that mules are tremendous jumpers and have been known to jump out of their stalls, from a dead standstill!

Mules can do everything a horse can do, plus more. The same mule that jumps may also drive, do Western events, be a family's quiet babysitter, etc. They are the most versatile equines on earth. There's nothing they can't do!

There are plenty of things mules can't do. Not every horse is suited to every discipline, and that holds true for mules as well.

I adore mules. At some point I'd love to have a riding mule. Preferably a spotted one, although color is always the last thing I look for when I'm selecting for suitability.

I didn't say every mule can do everything. It was a general statement.

From what I understand Mules are fantastic jumpers. You should check out mule jumping on youtube. They have these competitions (called coon jumping I think?) where they will jump four foot jumps from a stand still!

I have ridden/helped train a draft mule but my main experience with them is as driving teams. They do make wonderful mounts and are very sensible but I personally prefer horses. For some reason, I just can't understand how a mule thinks. And yes, they can jump, very well, very high, and from the most unusual positions LOL.
