I’m pretty sure every equestrian is familiar with reining, as it is one of the most beautiful and creative equine disciplines around. Not every rider and all kinds of horses can manage to compete in reining competitions because it requires tough work combined with long experience, and of course, an intense bond with your horse.
That’s why when we found out that mules were competing in reining we simply thought it was really amazing because it is not every day that you see a mule performing reining in a professional competition. People are usually very speculative when it comes to mules and think that they shouldn’t be considered a breed.
The truth is that mules are very intelligent and can be seen in different equine disciplines such as dressage, showjumping, or, as you will see in the video below, even in reining. Not to mention the fact that they are used for multiply reasons including riding, transportation, flight protection, or as a guide.
We really hope that with all the information provided for mules, people will be more interested in them and will start looking at them from a different perspective. I’m pretty sure that all equestrians will appreciate the beautiful performance of the talented mules in the video shown below.
They proved once again how capable mules are and how many great things they can achieve if they are trained correctly. Don’t miss the chance to watch the amazing mules compete in reining and if you liked what you saw, feel free to share it.
