Mule Bits and Mule Saddles – Correcting Mistakes

Steve Edwards: Hey mule folks, donkey folks. I hear this all the time, “I don’t want to make a mistake. I want to get it right the first time.” Ain’t going to happen. I’ve been doing this for over 40 years, four decades I’ve been doing this. Have I made mistakes? Yes, 32 broken bones, two hip replacements later, I’ve made mistakes. Don’t give up. It’s okay. You make a mistake, the mule ain’t going to hold it against you. That’s one of the downsides of a lot of these backyard people and a lot of thoughts of being back in the south and this sort of thing, “Hey, you better watch. That mule, you hit him, he’ll wait his lifetime to kick you.” That’s wrong.

I’ll tell you what, I have seen a young mare literally kick a mule so hard that it knocks him off his feet. She spun and kicked him really hard. That mule followed her everywhere. That mule wanted to spend time with her. Why? That mule saw leadership. Look folks, this isn’t, “Okay fluffy. I’ll be all better now.” Don’t do that. They don’t understand fluffy. This is not your year-and-a-half year old child. This is not your poodle folks. This animal can take you out in a matter of seconds. It can break bones quicker than you can ever imagine with a 1,000 pounds rolling on you.

Yes, you’re going to make mistakes. My videos, they’re right on the money. You’ll see me, I don’t take and pre-do anything, preset anything. You see actually time. You’ll see mistakes in there and I’ll talk about it. I’m going to tell you. Did you make a mistake putting a wrong saddle on? Yes. Did you make a mistake putting in the wrong bit? Yes. How can we fix it? We take that bit, and we take it out of its mouth, and we go to the dentist, we get his mouth all fixed right, we get him balanced and corrected. For the saddle, we go to a chiropractor. Don’t you go to the doctor and a dentist? Yes, you do. You know?

We make mistakes, but don’t worry about it. Don’t worry about it. Call me. Let me help you. I’ve got the videos. I’ve got the YouTube’s. I’m here for you. Let me know what Steve Edwards from Queen Valley Mule Ranch can do to help you.
