    so anybody here ever ride a mule? I have I occasionally ride a mule that's at our barn her name is Molly. One of my friends actually rides her originally. I occasionally will ride her Mule and we switch horses or something.

    I've never ridden a mule but I think it would be cool.

    yeah it is really cool I never thought about a mule or even riding one until I rode Molly she's awesome.

    This is her.....

    This is her original rider. They are such a great pair.

    Is a mule a female donkey or something?

    A mule is a cross between a horse and a donkey. I think when breeding its mainly donkey stallions to horse mares.

    Really? :) I'd like to see that, I don't know alot about Mules, don't think we have many in the UK. They look calm, sturdy types though. Are they quite good then?

    That is so so very weird.
    Like Meggymoo. I would like to see that happen!
    But how on earth can they do dressage?
        04-23-2007, 07:03 AM
    they get bred with a dressage type horse. Get some sort of dressage lines in them and that helps. Oh and the only thing about mules though is that female mules cannot reproduce. If you breed them they or their baby or both of them will not live. Its just very hard something about the chromosomes or something. I think there has been a recording of one mule having a baby though but that's all i've heard of. Oh and most people will say mules are stubborn its kinda the thing people have labeled them with it really depends on the mule though. I find Molly to have the occasional stubborness nothing more than what a horse would have though.
