Cindy Roberts is the Head-Honcho, and developer of Every Cowgirl's Dream. The website is a passionate testimony to her equine skills and knowledge that is useful to mule owners facing behavioral and training issues with their animals. You will find her published mule training articles along with her mule training books. This website is excellent information for anyone who desires to have a better understanding of mules, and what makes them click. Cindy believes that you have to understand the heart and language of the mule and horse before you can successfully ask them to do anything. When your mule or horse realizes 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. Enjoy and keep riding.

"Cindy, I am enclosing a check for your book, Answers To Your Mule Questions.  The excerpts I read "online" sounded very practical, well-founded, and written in a clear direct style.  I like that.  I read a lot of stuff and not too much of it can be described that way.  I wasn't disappointed when I received your book...particularly appreciated the "Mule Psychology 101" section.  In the question and answer section...it is good that you are there with bold, clear, optimistic advice and direction.  I'm sure accidents have been prevented and borderline mules saved as a result and the chances of these folks finding or training a really good mule are much better." 

Much obliged, Richard Hale, La Junta, CO



Intriguing! Though it’s about mules, it is an excellent read for anyone, including youth, who wants to learn more about understanding equine behavior in general. Cindy K Roberts has a handle on working with mules and offers a no-nonsense training approach based on mutual respect between mule and rider/handler instead of harsh bits and rough methods. Roberts' emphasizes working on a partnership; you are the leader and he needs to respect your position as leader. Training should be presented as fair, strong, and consistent so the mule understands your requests.  As a mule owner who’s seen too much abuse through a misunderstanding in the way people, especially those new to the mule world, handle their mules, I think this book is a fantastic insight into what makes mules such special individuals. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in mules and equines in general.
