Review from Mules and More Magazine
Confidence Training for the Western Saddle Mule by Cindy K. Roberts is a good book for anyone interested in furthering their mule training education from handler to trainer to rider. She shows that with time, patience and these techniques it is possible to fix our mules' problems.
It is one thing to read about how to fix these problems but it is another to see it how it is actually done. That is why I really like the step-by-step photos showing Cindy implementing these techniques, like how to desensitize and trailer load.
She does not just cover training though. There is an extensive chapter on nutrition, which will enrich your knowledge about your mules' hay, feed and supplements along with emphasizing the importance of saddle, pad and bridle fit.
Through quotes from other trainers, plus plenty of her own knowledge, Cindy shows you how to have a confident, well-trained mule that wants to please you.
