Welcome to Rocky Mountain Mule and Saddle Company!
Thanks for visiting my website! My name is Karen Lovell. I have been involved in the agriculture industry all my life. My parents had a large mixed farm in Stettler, Alberta where we raised beef cattle and horses. I started riding horses when I was very young and moved on to compete in Rodeos, Donkey and Mule shows and even was part of Team Mule at the Battle of the breeds at Spruce Meadows in 1999.
While working for Brad Cameron in the early 2000's, I learned all that I could about establishing a mental connection with my animals and have since applied these techniques to my training practice. I also offer clinics to help others learn the same benefits!
I now own my own mule and cattle ranch near Rocky Mountain House, Alberta. With a lifetime of experience, I know the importance of good quality mounts and the equipment to keep them comfortable.
Knowing that quality equipment is hard to acquire, I started building my own. I started by learning how to tie my mohair chinches and have moved on to learn leather working in order to make my own headstalls and britchin. Since then I have moved on to build dog collars and belts and more! All our items have been personally tested right here at The Rocky Mountain Mule Ranch so we know the durability of the materials and how the products will stand up against everyday use.
We use only natural fibers in all of our products. The outstanding properties of mohair, wool, and leather are by far the strongest and most comfortable for your animals.
The mule saddles are also of top manufacturing, made in the United States by McCall Saddlery. These saddles were hand designed and the trees custom made to fit mules. They are extremely well made, and are light enough for trail and strong enough for hard ranch work. All saddles are custom order so please contact us if you would like any information.
We are gearing down the mule training end of our operation after over 25 years but will offer a very limited number of saddle mules for sale.
Instructions will be limited but watch our blog for dates on clinics and private instructions. I am always available for phone calls or questions.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my website and my products! If you have any questions please contact us!
