Doc the Dressage Mule

Since Gerry looks like this:

And Can't ride until early next year. We've put Doc the mule into dressage training with K.P.

I fixed up Dallas' old Wintec dressage saddle with a slightly smaller gullet plate, reconfigured his werstern crupper from a Y fork to a single, and used vinagroon (more on that later in the week) to dye the crupper black.

Doc is rocking his dressage lessons! We hope (fingers crossed!) to take him to a Dressage Schooling show in late November.

  1. Hi,
    I just thought I'd write in to say hi. I never heard of a mule doing dressage, but am so happy that you will not let precedent stand in your way. Gerry looks great, but it is so surprising that he can't ride until sometime next year. What a long recovery time.

    I know you are busy, you have been doing so many interesting things as posted on this blog, but drop a line sometime just to say hi.
