Mules are trained using a Full-Cheek Snaffle bit only. Groundwork
and Bridle work are taught to each mule before the mule is mounted
for the first time. This way, your mule knows the basic Bridle Cues
- disengage hind quarters, moving the shoulder, stopping, etc.
before the first ride. This makes it safer and easier for the mule
to stay calm and focused.
