A list of mule-savvy professionals in the UK

It occurred to me recently that it might be useful to have a web directory of mule-savvy professionals in the UK. I know firsthand how difficult it can be to find someone who has had any previous experience of mules!

Those marked with an asterisk are people who I personally recommend. The rest are people who have been recommended to me by other mule owners in the UK, or are those who I know about via other means. However, please remember that I can accept no responsibility for you using this information: this is a guide, not a definitive registry, and it’s down to you as the mule owner to pick whoever you feel suits your mule best.

If you know someone who should be on this list, or would like to put yourself forward for inclusion, then please contact me at herecirm (at) gmail.com. Thanks!

Mulographer Sari

Sari was raised by cats which accounts for her solitary nature, occasional mania, and attraction to shiny objects. After riding and being around horses for 22 years, she discovered that she was, in fact, a mule girl and fell hopelessly in love with these extraordinary creatures. She lives in England and is married to Ben, who is potentially the best Ben who ever Benned.
