Stupid Question

Hello! I'm not necessarily new to horses but I've never heard this term before.
What is "mule reining?"

Mules are horses, so I suppose it's horse riding

In what context?

I can envision someone speaking of a mule who does reining or as an unusual reference to direct/plow reining..

They asked me if my horse did mule or neck reining.

Agreed, an unusual (at least in my area) reference to direct reining.

OP, do you have a lot of mules in your area?

Not really and the person that asked me is from where I used to live (nearly no mules there too).

The term is not common but "mule reining" is another term for "direct reining" which is another term for "plow reining". It's all the same thing.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Not a stupid question at all! I've been riding and showing horses for almost 20 years and I've never heard that term before. I live in an area with a lot of mules too... If it's a regional term, I wonder what region it comes from.
Regardless, I learned something new today!
