We specialize in training mules for mountain and trail riding, whether you have a young weanling that needs to be taught to lead, a colt that needs to be started under saddle, or an older mule that just needs a tune-up, we can help you get your mule on track to be amazing in the mountains!
*First we start off with a lot of ground work which includes join-up, sacking out, sensitizing & desensitizing, halter driving, ground driving, verticle & lateral flexion, and working with ropes, tarps, flags, etc.
*When the mule is ready, we start riding, usually spending 1-2 weeks in the round-pen and arena before going into the mountains.
*The mules are trained to deal with real life, every day situations encountered on the trail including water crossings, jumping logs and rocks, navigating through dead fall, dealing with dogs and distractions, packing, and many other things.
* Every mule is different, so when it comes to training and starting colts, each animal responds and progresses at their own rate.
Below are some pictures showing some of the things we do daily while training your mule.
