AGMA Members and Friends,

Just a friendly reminder about the AGMA Tennessee State Show at Shelbyville, TN, with the American Mule and Bluegrass Festival. The dates will be September 30, and October 1, 2022.  Show starts at 10 AM both days. All entries must be made before 5 p.m. the day before the show. Gene Montgomery and I will be at the show on Thursday to get mules registered, memberships renewed, and amateur cards assigned.  We all need to be on our best behaver so we are invited back in 2023. 
For info on the show go to americanmuleandbluegrassfestival.com.

Tammy and I look forward to seeing everyone and enjoying these events with the AGMA family.

What is a Gaited Mule?

A gaited mule is any mule that has a smooth gait other than a walk, and

one which is distinct from a trot. Gaits include single-foot, fox-trot, rack,

running walk, stepping pace, ​and paso fino, ​among others. Whatever

the gait may be called, its primary virtue is smoothness. A gaited mule

(or horse) can be ridden  farther without discomfort from bouncing

while trotting, and at a more manageable pace than a canter. A gaited

mule is great for trail riding, also.​​

What is the American Gaited Mule Association?

The American Gaited Mule Association is a group of people who have gotten together to:​

  • Promote the joy of owning and riding gaited mules
  • Sponsor shows or classes within those shows
  • Form a registry of gaited mules, jacks, jennets, and mares
  • ​Train and supply judges for gaited mule shows
  • Interact with other horse and mule organizations and enthusiasts
  • Educate the public on the virtues of gaited mules

The not-for-profit organization was founded in 1994. Gaited mules, mares, jacks and jennets may be registered. ​It's easy to join AGMA; print and complete the membership form, checking the level that fits you best. Membership levels include Founding Charter, Family and Single.
