Created by Eric Lynn and designed specifically for mules and donkeys.
Standard Donkey Saddle: these systems (18" bars) are built to fit donkeys and burros from approximately 45" standards up to about a 13 hand mammoth donkey.
Mammoths Donkeys over 13 hands should use the 21" saddle (21" bar).
The tack is constructed with a revolutionary product called BioThane®. BioThane® is more durable, cleanable, stronger and easier to maintain than leather, plus it is flexible, yet doesn't stretch, and is waterproof. Most importantly, it wears great against an equine's body.
Saddles weigh approximately 18 pounds without cinches.
3/4″ webbing has a 750 pound per inch breaking strength.
2″ webbing has a 2000 pound per inch breaking strength.
Mini Donkey/Mule (12" Bar) = Below 40" at the shoulder
Small Standard Donkey (18" Bar)= 40" - 45" (approx) at the shoulder
Standard Donkey (18" Bar) = 46" - 13 hands (approx) at the shoulder

Mule = Adjustable for most animals between 700-1400 pounds. For comparison, the mule in the picture is 15.1 hands.
Small Standards normally require a 22" front/24" rear
Standard Donkeys normally require a 24" front/26" rear
Mammoths can vary but most require a 26" front/28" rear. Big mammoths may need a 28" front/30" rear
Note: You may need to punch a few holes in the straps to get the best adjustment.
