We rode with a little mule last year and Biscuit and Sarge were fine with it and I was certainly glad. The first time we rode Sarge with a mule and it was braying - he nearly come uncorked. It was kinda funny.

He didn't mine this little mule last year though - well behaved little fellow and Biscuit was jogging right behind him...it was a little gaited mule at that!

Gunslinger, come on! We'd love IT!!!!!
We are in NW Arkansas. If you ever want to get away we have facilities and cabins and we'll show you two a GREAT time!

We actually went to dinner with more couples and them tonight. Every weekend we have before the 4th is totally booked so it'll be in a few more weeks. We were told some AMAZING stories tonight! Once when they were riding in CO they had a mule fall off a 40 ft. Cliff in the dark! The man felt her slipping and bailed right in time. They all left her for dead, devastated. Woke up the next morning to go try and find her and she was standing in camp, not a scratch on her! That's the wife's mule now, renamed her angel "cause the &itch got wings!" Too funny!

I'll let you guys know how it goes, it'll be a few weeks but I am soooooo excited! Finally a ride that won't be more like a training session, just pure enjoyment! As long as Rick doesn't freak at the sight and sound of the long ears! HA!

While my horses don't care about mules, They do look sideways at Llamas and they freak when they run into a camel.

A little mule a gal brought along one one of our rides.

And somebodies mule working hard up elk hunting

Both my horses grew up with donkeys so mules don't bother them. If Thor sees a cow though watch out cause he's going to run for quite a ways to get away from that horse eating monster. It's so embarrassing having a 1600+ lb horse scared to death of a calf.

I have had others board their horses (who had never seen a donkey) with my donkey Eyore before and most of the time they just give him a good looking over then treat him the same as another horse. I find that the horses seem calmer with the donkeys around.

I don't trail ride right now but I do take long walks with my boys. Baldur is in trail horse training right now. In September he comes home and I get to finally hit the trails again after ~10 yrs.

We went on a big group camp/ride a couple of years ago. It was the first ride like this for my OTTB and my parents 2 OTTBs as well. Some of the people had mules. Our horses didn't act any different. I didn't even think that maybe they would. I think you'll be fine. Hooray for riding buddies. Not easy to find sometimes.

My horse rode next to a mule at our very first big group ride like he did it every day. Not so much as a sideways look. Then again, the mule never made a peep.
