Hey mule riders! Are you tired of your mule not having stop, back up, rein, balance, suppleness and control? The Mule Rider’s Martingale is made out of a new product called Beta™ that looks & feels like leather but it is much easier to care for. This martingale is the same one Steve uses in his training programs and clinics. The bridle, reins, and how to video (included) is the first stage of Steve’s bitting program.

The video will help you understand how to set a foundation of balance and understanding between you and your mule. Steve Edwards has the answers in this new video complete with mule riders’ martingale. The video will teach you how to adjust the martingale to your mule, and includes step by step instruction as to how to use the martingale.

This package includes the Headstall, Bit, rein and the Instructional DVD!

One size fits all if you have a small headed mule just punch holes and cut excess off.

The martingale bridle is great and Molly was a lot happier in the new saddle too. It’s amazing the difference it all has made. If I didn’t have to work I would ride all the time. I can’t thank you enough.

    A must have piece of equipment. We were seeing results within the first 10 minutes of using it the first time with our mule, Rosie. She is keeping her face in the vertical. My husband rode her for the first time the other day with the Mule Rider’s Martingale….his first comment was how light she was. Very well pleased.

  2. Ben Aranda

    Excellent piece of equipment. Only a light touch works with Ginger.

  3. Ronald Stoddard (verified owner)

    Excellent product, The only complaint is the throat strap should be a little longer as I’m on the last hole, but still works great.

  4. Jack (verified owner)

    Quality construction and my mule is comfortable when she’s wearing it. She is really developing a soft touch, I recommend getting a circingle from Steve when purchasing this if you plan on working your Mule in a round pen.

    Works very well. Thank you Steve!

    We have a smaller mule so the bit appears too big, but after watching video and adjusting bridle it sits appropriately and she is softening with each use, we are able to control, prior to this bit she was able to manipulate everything we tried. She is less stressed and looks forward to us going riding

    Great tool. Really teaches the mule how to accept a lite touch. Every time I use it my mule gets softer, Great product.

    The Mule Rider’s Martingale is a great tool~~the video is great. My mule did just as you said. She keeps her head in line with her back. I’ve learned so much from you from the videos and also I watch you on YouTube. Thanks for all your help, Steve.

    Don’t let the “long face” fool you, my mule loves the double twisted wire bit. I have ridden her for many years with a traditional snaffle bit but she has never truly liked it and “chewed” on it a lot. The second I got this new bit in her mouth, and adjusted the way Steve recommends, she didn’t have a smile on her face anymore but you could see she was happier.
    The “beta” martingale at first glance wouldn’t satisfy a “purist” leather lover but add a little dirt and dust and it looks and feels like the real thing and like Steve says, it requires a whole lot less maintenance. I personally don’t have a problem with my mules keeping their head down but if you did, this would do the trick. I like how light the reins are on the bit with this design.

    We have just started using this and seeing results after the first day. It was a lot of chewing and moving it around for my 11 year old green jenny. She started to get comfortable and calm, and moves with soft touch on the ground. So far, excellent!

    This is great for starting mules and to get good control over a headstrong mule. It is excellent for teaching turns, and stops! Good video too!

What bit do I use to train for riding?

You’ll want to start with the Mule Rider’s Martingale for training to ride. This is going to give you full control and will also keep the mule from elevating his head and tightening all his neck muscles. Just the snaffle bit by itself will teach the mule to brace and after a while they’ll start raising their head and tightening their neck.

The whole martingale keeps the mule honest. The mule wants to get away from doing what you want him to do. They’ll stick their nose out but you don’t feel it or think about it. Then they raise their head but you don’t feel it and don’t think about it. Then they tighten up and they got ya.

Foundation is the most important.
