So I have recently stumbled across a super cute mule. He is just a baby at 5 months and the horse breed in him is QH. Momma was a donkey.
I am toying around with the idea of buying him and training him to do some lower level eventing and jumping. Eventually he would become DH's for trail riding and possibly used in my school as a lease horse. I wouldn't use him as a full time school horse.
Am I crazy for thinking this? I don't have a lot of experience with mules, and honestly they are not that common around here as anything more then a pet.
I have seen that they are rather common in the US as eventing horses. So thoughts? Experience? Please share and help me decide if I want to do this. Thankfully his owner is not in a rush to get rid of him so I do have time to mull it over.
