I'm looking for a new ride.... and I'm beginning to think about a mule. I love the fact that they are so sure-footed. How hard is it for a horse person to adjust to a mule?
At almost 65, I'm really looking for my last equine. I want slow, reliable, safe. I'm in no hurry to get anywhere except down the trail at a walk and I'm in no rush to buy. We do a lot of up and down and across water. I'd like to have a cooperative partner...
My husband doesn't care what I ride as long as I don't end up back in the hospital but some of my friends are appalled that I'm considering a mule. Safe and a trail partner is what I'm looking for. So should I think about a mule or am I nuts? And what should I look for in a mule that might be different than I 'm looking for in a horse?
I guess at this stage I'm just intrigued.
