    Hello, I am a 73 old woman who has been riding mules for 20yrs. Still consider myself and intermediate rider. I have a “new to me” john mule who is 9yrs, 14h. He was packed and ridden all last summer. Good ground manners, ok neck rein, learning leg pressure. Smart, willing, and good on trails. I like him very much. The problem – he is heavy on the front end and I frequently feel him slam his right foot down at a slow walk. Going down hill he really jams that front end and it nearly jars me to death.. I am having an equine chiropractor out this week to see if problem may lie there. But if not, is there a way to correct this. If so, I know you can not possible tell me in an email, but if it is correctable, who do you suggest. I live in MO and spend the winter in AZ. I like him well enough that I would be willing to spend to have him where I am not jarred to death when riding him. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.
    Pam Chappel
