Mules doing Dressage
I am soon going to be riding a mule, and the owner would like me to try and teach this mule dressage. I think its great that someone wants me to teach their mule dressage because I think that would be fun.
Well I really would like to show her at the end of the year in a dressage schooling show. Do you think she will be discriminated?(sp?) I think she will, but I really want to prove them wrong.
What do you think?
As long as she goes nicely i dont think they can discriminate :) May aswell go and see, its all fun anyway :D
i have a friend that trains mules and "forces" his niece to ride them in english and western pleasure. most of the time she is judged pretty farely. ONce in a blue moon she gets a judge that doesnt quite judge as fairley but most of the time....
according to the way dressage is supposed :roll: to be scored, they cannot fault the equiid on anything but how it performs the test (and things like submission)
good luck, sounds like fun!
I don't know, worth a try! :D Hopefully not. Good luck!
Just like everything else you will have judges that won't like it and some who won't judge any differently. But again I am going to be taking my full draft to some hunter shows so...
You have nothing to lose! I have seen many unusual equines beet the crap out horses that were expected to do better. It's about the animal and the rider.
I hope everything goes well!
