“Am I able to use a horse saddle on my mule or donkey?”

It’s a fair question and one you should be proud of yourself for asking. You want the best for your mule and you want to enjoy going out and hitting the trail.

The short answer is, “no, horse saddles are not meant to fit a mule or donkey.”

When you use a horse saddle on a mule you will hurt your mule. It may show up on scalding and it may be 100% underneath the skin, such as kidney damage.

In this video Steve Edwards of Queen Valley Mule Ranch explains the differences in a mule saddle vs a horse saddle and exactly why you need to buy a saddle that is designed to fit that skeletal structure of the donkey or the mule.
