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?

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!

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.
