The jumping over logs and stuff isnt bad, just some of the things on the hills and cliff type things there are jumping down and such! I guess I'm no ruff rider! Most of the trails around here are flat as can be!

This might be just enough to convince my skeptical friend.....this is WHY I want a mule!!

Sure footed and brave.......although you wouldn't catch me doing what they're doing in the vid......only if my life depended on it!!

Now I want a mule...

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

Watched this vid awhile ago..I was definitely amazed and wanted/still want a mule or four..they have to be finished though, I'm not sure I want to attempt the training myself, I'll stick to horses for that, lol.

They don't need shoes often. And they were mostly landing in sand. But, HOLY bulging disks in your lower back get popped out! OUCH! no thanks.

Very cool. While I appreciate the mules for their sure-footedness, I would still gladly take the more boring route.
