    Trail Help

    I think I am going to need a horse or mule to ride in the back country. What makes the best back country riding animal? I plan to exployer the South San Juan and I cant walk that much.

    I prefer the long eared persuasion. If I was a cowboy I'd ride a horse. But sense I'm an elk hunter I ride a mule

    In all honesty. Get a good whatever horse or mule. And enjoy

    Riding a bull elk looks a little bit wild. If he looked hard left/right he could sweep you off his back with his horns...or antlers.

    Extreme, Go with a mule. I've got horses & mules. Mules are better when it comes to backcountry imo. I've had horses spook in steep terrain. When they started sliding, made me really nervous. I ride my horses when we gather cattle & that is pretty much it these days. I've got a couple of brood mares I breed to my jack. Started raising mules 8 years ago & love them. We trail ride, hunt hogs & coons off our mules. When was you planning on exploring? I'm looking at heading out that way this summer (July or August) to ride in Unit 81. You are welcome to ride with us if you want. I've got 4 mules & my buddy has a pasture full! So we always have an extra with us.

    jen, do you see how close one of the points is to the riders eye. Riding an elk is not on my bucket list. Going to be tough enough to ride a mule
