I did an hour mule ride when I was there in 2010 along the rim of the canyon. Only reason I didn't do a longer one is because I was going to run out of time as I spent the morning hiking.
They didn't even have helmets to offer people which I thought was strange. In Australia you can't go on one of those kind of rides without approved helmet and boots.
I'd never even seen a mule until that day and I rather like them. I've been a little temped to buy one but I'm wondering how a mule would go with eventing!

It was well worth the short ride I did, so can only imagine how amazing the 3 hour ride would be.

Just for some fun, here's me on a lovely little mule!

I was told by an old horsemen that I trained under that mules are more surefooted than horses because they are able to see all the way around them instead of just their sides with blind spots like horses. If this is true or not, I don't know but I DO know that mules have always been better for trails rides than horses - always seemed to know where to put their feet. :)

I always wanted to go on a Grand Canyon ride...

However I get nightmares of riding and then rocks gave in on a mountain and I fell...And died...LOL.

For the wretched of the earth there is a flame that never dies.
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.
