LOL! With that "mulish" attitude, I hope they don't want much. Not for me.

Did anyone notice he did the back cinch up first when tacking the mule up and not only that it was done up tight? Potential safety issue doing it that way in my books and that snug may be uncomfortable and contribute to the edginess of the mule. Also, did anyone think that the mule was tied unusually short?

Yes to both. I noticed the tight back cinch and kept waiting for the mule to buck. After seeing how much the mule pulled back, I wasn't surprised to see him tied short. That wobbly tie post worried me too.

A lot of people keep the back cinch so loose it is useless, and even dangerous. I don't know about the one in the video, but I've seen a lot of them hanging down 8 inches, just waiting for a foot to go through.

That saddle was really cool, though. Interesting polleys.

Gaited mules are very popular with trail riders where I am at.

However, I really disliked that mule's ground manners. I don't know of anyone who would put up with him setting back like that. He obviously never learned to tie. But maybe I can't blame the mule. He was ridden pretty roughly and was gaping his mouth the whole time.

The "trainers" may have skill but they have "0" finesse.

That was one unhappy mule. Maybe a skilled trainer could fix him, but I wouldn't want him in my stable. He's over my head.
