He is easily
controlled, rides 'in the bridle' and will go just about
anywhere you ask. I haven't found a place he won't go. He is
safe, rides with
dogs, not bothered by cattle and I used him hog hunting and
lead dogs several times.
He loads, clips, bridle and saddles great. He is ok with
the farrier, not perfect but ok.
Journey has been ridden in the arena a bunch and has
spent countless hours on the trails around here. He is soo
much fun to trail ride in rough country as he travels safe
and climbs steep grades with the best of them. I have never
found his 'worn out' point. He will go forever and rides
really smooth. This nice boy will long trot for miles and
miles. Then you can go into an arena and lope circles, small
and slow or large or fast, in either direction, neck reins
and works well off of your legs. He moves well off of his
front end or rear end, lateral trots and side passes.
Journey has a lot of speed, controlled speed and will slide
to a stop.
If this is the kind of mule you like, and I like him a
lot, come see us and we'll make a nice circle in the timber
and you can play around in the arena
