We have a mule with an elevated spine.
The Cowboy Saddle worked great but was a little heavy for my husband who has arthritis to through it up on an over 16 hand mule. I purchased the Trail Lite Saddle as a Christmas present.
Now my husband rides in the Trail Lite Saddle and I use his Cowboy Saddle on my mule. We are very pleased with both.
They are comfortable for both rider and more importantly – comfortable for Miss Mule.
