You can teach your mule, your donkey to respect the halter and prepare them to be ready to go under saddle. The Surcingle is a teaching tool that places light pressure on the halter or bit so your equine can learn to work with the halter and bridle.
The Surcingle is an expert training tool designed to allow trainers of all skill and experience to teach the mule/donkey to respect the halter, teach them to drop their head, and naturally tip their nose on the vertical… all to ease pressure. Over time, owners using the Surcingle develop a soften animal, ready to listen and receive communication.
This Surcingle is 3 inches wide and 2 1/2 feet long with D-rings around it. It has two nylon latigos hanging from a D-ring on each side to connect to a cinch. You can use any size cinch with this surcingle and if you have a particularly small animal, you don’t even need to use a cinch — simply tie off the latigos on the bottom and you’re done.
