This mule may grow up to be smallish. The taller ones usually carry draft.

I am expecting around 14.2. Would that be a fair guess? By the time I start riding him I am hoping to have my weight down. Otherwise I am rather short so don't need much height. I like my equines under 16 hands. Any bigger is to far to fall

So DH is actually okay with the idea. I am not getting ahead of myself as I have to look into trailering and such. We would bring him home in the spring, we are buying property next fall and will be building a barn and indoor. So chances are it will all fall together perfectly. Poor lil buggar has a 5 - 6 day trailer ride ahead of him.

xJumperx- If it is half horse and half donkey, it is still a mule. They are called hinny's when the mom is a donkey, but they are still 100% a mule. Most times a person can't tell if it is a hinny just by looking at it. They are just generally smaller because the donkey (mom) is smaller. But genetically, it is a mule.

If it's not half ass, it's just a horse!

Every year during the week of Memorial Day, in Bishop, Ca. they have Mule Days. If you want to see mules in action, that is the place to go. They race, run barrels, rope, sort, jumping, dressage, all the typical english and western, trail, halter, chariot racing, chariot roping, chariot barrels, log skidding, pulling, coon jumping.....you name it, they have it. It is the largest mule show in the western U.S.

has anyone found out if mules are allowed to event in the US ?

ETA i found an article from 2010 saying they could not. in the USEF rule book it talked about how mules can do combined driving [i think] and dressage except in championships but said nothing about eventing.

I believe Allison Finch said they can? I know they can for sure in Canada, don't know about the US though.

It is a stated fact that mules are better jumpers the horses.
Have you ever heard of coon jumping??

Or mule nelly jumped our six foot fence....FROM A STANDSTILL
i am not trying to sound rude so im sorry if i do but i kinda "specialize" in mules and it gets a litle annoying because people think mules are only for packing, mules do :
Show jumping

raceing

Western pleasure/ showmanship

Dressage

barrels

trail

Mules do everything :) it is not a bad idea at all

and i ride him in all the horse shows and it make me feel good when at first they give my snobby looks and then i kick their butt on a mule.
Mules are just as good as horses and better
