Event Description

Four untrained mules, 4 trainers, 3 days, 1 Champion. October 14, 15 and 16 2016, Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, Sierra County Sheriffs Posse Arena. 9 am to 5 pm each day. 

Trainers will train the mules each morning, three total training sessions. The afternoons are dedicated to clinics provided by the trainers and other noted professionals. Clinic Subjects include: Packing Clinic, Emergency Equine First Aid, Saddle Fitting, Desensitization, Riding With Confidence, Mulemanship, and The Soft and Supple Mule. Our trainers include: Our returning champion Ty Evens, Paul Garrison III, Cris French, and Shawn Petersen. We do reserve the right to replace trainers in the event of accident or injury. 

This year we have an additional trainer demonstrating the art of bringing  a mule from unhandled to halter broke and trust. Please welcome: Susan Soberbergh. Though Susan is not participating in the competition aspect of the challenge, we felt it important to present our audience with the complete picture of early mule training.

On Satureday evening the spectators are welcome to compete in a 50/50 Jackpot obstacle course on their own mules. Two classes will be held: Trainers Class (open to trainers both competing in the challenge and all other interested mule trainers) and Open Class.

 Sunday afternoon the trainers will exhibit their finished product, Awards to be presented and the auction of training mules and others will commence.
