(HORSES/CUTE ANIMAL VIDEOS) Meet Wallace the Great, an 11-year-old mule who was found abandoned in an Irish village before being rescued by the Donkey Sanctuary. Now he’s become the first half-donkey, half-horse to win a British Dressage competition in the UK, after his caretaker, Christie McLean, campaigned for mules to be allowed to participate.

Since the British Dressage Quest Club changed its rules to allow any animal born to a mare to compete, Wallace took first place at Summerhouse Equestrian in Gloucestershire, against eight, fully horse and pony competitors. Watch the talented lad in action! — Global Animal
