Mule for sale

Awapuni Bruno

Bruno (Awapuni Bruno) is a 12 year old brown gelding standing close to 16 hands - his sire, is a Mammoth Donkey and his Dam is a Clydesdale.

His current owner has owned him from 2 years old and had him broken in at the age of 4. At the age of 8, he was leased out for 2 years to a person who packed and rode him the length of the North Island. He has been ridden 2 - 3 times per week since then.

He has been trekked, doing Competitive Trail Riding and entered in Shows. He is easy to catch, saddle and mount. A good doer, never covered or shod. He has never had an injury and only one hoof abscess in 10 years, great feet. Would suit being used as a pack mule or a riding mule for a strong experienced rider.

He is being sold only to an approved home that will use him regularly and keep him progressing.
He comes with all his gear: saddle blanket, Australian Stock saddle, bridle, and breechen.
