Its okay. I'm not going to be completely training him myself. My riding instructor has been training for around 35 years so she will be helping me.
He's only 4 yrs, much younger than I wanted but he's already saddle trained, has been lounged and will change directions and speeds on cue. He's been trailed through the city and parks, went over a metal bridge his first time out and never spooked. He picks up all 4 hooves, stands perfectly for the farrier, and trailers well. 4yr Old 15'1"h Mule
I'm first just wanting to make him a nice trail horse. From there, I might be interested in making him into a jumper if he shows potential. I also plan on showing him in halter.
I'm not really wanting a training position. I've noticed that even for just a barn hand position, people want some sort of training experience. I can work with both horses and the mule since I can use the instructors horse as well.
