Mules doing Dressage

I am soon going to be riding a mule, and the owner would like me to try and teach this mule dressage. I think its great that someone wants me to teach their mule dressage because I think that would be fun.
Well I really would like to show her at the end of the year in a dressage schooling show. Do you think she will be discriminated?(sp?) I think she will, but I really want to prove them wrong.

What do you think?

I have a friend that trains mules and "forces" his niece to ride them in english and western pleasure. Most of the time she is judged pretty farely. ONce in a blue moon she gets a judge that doesnt quite judge as fairley but most of the time....

According to the way dressage is supposed :roll: to be scored, they cannot fault the equiid on anything but how it performs the test (and things like submission)

Good luck, sounds like fun!

I don't know, worth a try! Hopefully not. Good luck!

Just like everything else you will have judges that won't like it and some who won't judge any differently. But again I am going to be taking my full draft to some hunter shows so...

You have nothing to lose! I have seen many unusual equines beet the crap out horses that were expected to do better. It's about the animal and the rider.
