My name is Cindy Roberts, head honcho and developer of Every Cowgirl's Dream. My web site is a passionate testimony to my equine skills and knowledge that is useful to mule owners that are facing behavioral and training issues with their own animals. I believe that you have to understand the heart and language of the mule and horse before you are able to successfully ask them to do anything. When your mule or horse realize that you have that ability, it creates a desire within him to want to bond and be with you. They then become confident animals that are willing to perform, work is no longer tedious and school becomes fun for both of you. Their curiosity continues to grow while you have opened a door to a lifetime of their learning. On this page, you will find as listing of mule trainers located in the United States that share this same philosophy.  If I can assist you in anyway, I'd love to hear from you.  Enjoy and keep riding!
