About Ty Evans

Ty Evans has ridden mules his entire life and has been buying, selling, and training mules as a career for over 9 years and in that time has trained hundreds of mules for people from all over the United States, Canada, and Australia. TS Mules believes in working hard, being honest and reliable in everything we do and achieving each and every customer’s goal desired for their mule. Ty was the winner of the 2015 and 2016 American Mule Trainers Challenge, and his methods are based on “feel” and “timing,” which can produce great results in the mules he works with.

Clinic Descriptions

The clinics will each be 75 minutes in length and include up to Five(5) clinic riders in each session.

Important Information

  • Horses must arrive at least an hour and a half before the scheduled clinic time.
  • Selected participants will be notified no later than the end of the day, March 20th, 2020.
  • Once accepted, you will be given a limited amount of time to confirm your participation and pay the fees. Additional forms and information will be sent via email by the end of the day March 30th, 2020.
