^ While you seem hesitant toward mules, they sound like just what you should be looking for in your situation if you want a safe, solid, enjoyable ride. A good mule has no equal. That being said, a good mule is also not cheap....

See, that last part kind of throws me... "very well-controlled"... are we talking about the same animals?

Not saying there aren't very solid horses, donkeys, and mules, but they are a living creature, not a machine, therefore they can never be 100% reliable. They all have their moments as you've probably deduced from all of our replies. Riding equines means building a set of skills you won't get from doing anything else. It means having muscles in places you didn't know existed. It also means a fall will eventually happen.
