Bishop Mule Days

Are you going to be at Bishop Mule Days this year? We'd love to get to meet you if you are there!

Bishop Mule Days is one of my favorite longears events of the year! And I can hardly believe it's only about two weeks until the show starts. I always look forward to the great variety of donkey and mule events, as well as the chance to meet many wonderful donkey and mule owners.

I have enjoyed watching the more serious events as well as the just-for-fun kind of classes. Here are a few pictures from last year.

This first photo is of several of the nice saddle mules lined up in their English riding class.


And this is one of the fun races. In this class there were quite a few participants who had come with the Pyles Boys Camp group. Pyles Boys Camp works with boys from troubled homes and gives them an opportunity to experience life in a new way. I really think it's great that they offer these young men the wonderful opportunity to work with mules and participate in events like Bishop Mule Days every year.


If you have extra time while you are at mule days, you might enjoy checking out some of the other attractions in the community. There is a really neat historical museum in Bishop that you might like to visit.


Mammoth Lakes is also not to far away, and makes a nice escape from the hot weather down in the valley. Here is a beautiful little lake we visited up there last year.


Come join us for this exciting week!
