Building a strong partnership with your mule companion involves more than just mastering riding techniques; it requires a deep understanding of the subtle art of communication. Partnering with your mule on the ground serves as a foundation for trust and confidence, fostering a connection that transcends the saddle.
This collaborative approach not only enhances your ability to navigate obstacles together but also plays a pivotal role in the development of soft communication skills. Through groundwork, you establish a language of cues and responses, laying the groundwork for a harmonious relationship. As this bond strengthens, the transition to under-saddle performance becomes a seamless journey, where the nuances of your communication create mutual understanding, elevating both rider and mule to new levels of skill and partnership
This young mule was not a fan of anything above her. A little work
and improvement is being made
Hey folks. My name is Mike Price. I was born in Stevensville Montana and lived there till I was 20 years old I then moved to Whitehall Montana. Whitehall is home and that is where my wife Kristyy Price and my two boys Gabe and Trent Price train and ride mules daily. Iwasn born and raised with mules and I've had the opportunity to work with a couple phenomenal trainers growing up and still taking clinics whenever I possibly can to keep learning. My first animal that I trained when I was 7 years old was a donkey and I have been hooked on training ever since. We have been training for the public for the last 20 years. We enjoy taking our mules to shows and competing along with brandings in the spring and most of all packing and trail riding our mules. I appreciate the opportunity of being able to come to the expo and help share some things and to meet new people and most of all, hopefully get to help some folks with their mules. Thank you and see you soon
