    I was doing a hunter pace hosted by our local hunt club. One of the course monitors had his truck parked next to the course with two hunt dogs in training tied to the bumper. My concern was the...

    I was trying to get my point across to someone who kept insisting the judge was correct in following USEF rules for the show, hence not allowing the mule back. One of the quotes:

    The original post has nothing to do with the mule causing chaos or being a distraction at the show.

    As I've mentioned several times, the show organizers were very complimentary of the mule and...

    The only reason I bring up the judges card is because as I've stated numerous times, the mom of the child asked the show organizers ahead of time if it was okay to bring the mule. The organizers...

    She's riding a borrowed mule because the rescue pony she got from the SPCA is not quite ready for prime time. Is that a good enough reason?

    Additionally, not only is she a regular volunteer for...

    This is a great plug for a website like Rate My Horse Pro.

    You are right though, I'm sure most people don't research facilities, especially if they are fairly new to having horses.

    I saw the email the farm sent. If I had known how controversial this would become I would have thought to save it. Part of the email said they loved having the mule there and there were no issues...

    So based on your experience, perhaps she shouldn't have been competing on him:

    “It appears that the deep ground has proven too much for an old suspensory injury and he has had to be withdrawn."

    Yes, this is the whole point! It was a SCHOOLING show. Why people are having such a difficult time comprehending that is beyond me.

    We have an eventing venue here in California that has a train track running parallel and very close to the facility. Can you imagine hearing the blast of a train right before X halt, salute?!

    I just found out that according to witnesses, people (trainers and parents) started grumbling during the show with one comment being: "I can't believe my horse was beaten by a donkey." Not mule,...

    One little correction. The barn owners were perfectly fine with the mule being there, their response when asked about it was quite nice. It was only after the show that the barn owners called the...

    I think $100 is much too generous.

    I stopped giving gifts to my nieces and nephews when I never got a proper thank you. As kids, my siblings and I were raised to write thank you notes. To this...

    I don't understand why people continue to bring up spooking, disruption, chaos etc. in this particular instance.

    The mule was well behaved all day. None of the horses had a problem with it. NONE....

    The mule was perfectly well behaved the entire day and the show organizers were very happy having it there. No one fell off their horse, a loud bray didn't scare anyone and the long ears didn't...

    Agree with you 100%. I don't know why the "everyone gets a trophy" movement began, but it's a bad idea. The only time I think all little kids should get a blue ribbon is for a lead line class. ...

    Pre-heated oven about 375 for 15-18 minutes. Adding some white wine or water to the other 3 ingredients will help keep it moist and...

    But, but, but...how are the trainers going to explain to the parents why a child riding a mule, pinned higher than their child riding a horse? After all, it was a horse show... :rolleyes:

    Kindly explain why you feel is so wrong with mules that they need to be placed in a lower class of equids than horses?

    BTW, the classes were Eq classes so it was rider vs. rider, not horse vs....
