The duo has become the talk of the equestrian world, posing for pictures and making friends in Wellington, Florida and Tryon, North Carolina.
Slate the Dressage Mule – AKA Assassin
Since learning about Brooke USA, Grand Prix dressage rider Vicky Busch and her husband Eric have been generous supporters with the help of their dressage mule, Slate. Owning Slate has made the work that Brooke USA does — helping working equines including mules around the world — a cause close to the Busch’s and Slate’s hearts. Slate helps to continue to spread awareness of the plight of working equines in the developing world and the work of Brooke USA.
