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. Here, you will find my published mule training articles along with my mule training books.  This web site is excellent information for anyone that desires to have a better understanding about mules, and what makes them click. 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 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.  If I can assist you in anyway, I'd love to hear from you.  Enjoy and keep riding!

  Training The Hard To Catch Mule

By Cindy K. Roberts

A Logical Approach on How to Connect With Your Mule

Halter training for the hard to catch mule includes:

  • Gentling your mule

  • Teaching your mule to come to you

  • Teaching your mule to lead

  • Retraining older mules to lead

  • Correct use of a lead chain

  • Correcting forward behavior

  • Listen to your mule

  • Catching the older hard to catch mule.

Details on a logical approach to connect, form an equine partnership and bond with your mule. The book covers how a mule sees, hears, smells, and feels sensations in his world and what drives him to being the cautious animal that he is. Excellent training book for mule handlers wanting to learn the physiological aspects of the mule.

"I own a gaited mule for 3 years now and he was really hard to catch, I couldn't even touch him when he was out on the pasture. I found your book The Hard to Catch Mule and started working with him. [In the beginning] I couldn't separate him from the other mule and horse, but kept on with my training in the pasture. After 2 weeks now I call his name, he raises his head and comes over to me, puts his nose into the halter and I can put it on quite easily.  That's amazing!" ~Anja B.
