Welcome to Queen Valley Mule Ranch!


If you have a mule, have ever dreamed of owning one, or would just like to know more about these marvelous hybrids, you are in the right place!  My name is Steve Edwards and along with my wife, Susan, I own and operate Queen Valley Mule Ranch in scenic Arizona.  We are pleased to welcome you to our ranch and our home.


Queen Valley mule ranch is your "One Stop Mule Shop"!  Explore our site and you will see that we can offer you just about anything your heart desires when it comes to mules.


  • Read our story:  Find out who we are, our credentials, experience, and hear more about the ranch
  • Check out our Training Opportunities:  I can offer you clinics, private instruction, apprenticeships, appearances, training DVD's and articles.  No matter what your Mule School needs, I am happy to oblige!
  • See my signature STEVE EDWARDS QUEEN VALLEY MULE SADDLE AND TACK: I have designed a mule saddle that will truly fit any mule.  It is the result of 40 years of experience and hard work.   I did not set out to be a saddle builder, but our mules and donkeys guided me in the development of this unique saddle that sure changes everything for your mule or donkey.  No more "padding up a horse saddle" or hoping for the best.  Saddle up with confidence and get the most out of your mule using our tack.  I've been using this design on my working ranch since 1981.
  • Check out lots of cool mule stuff:  I have posted some articles for you and lots of links to help you connect up with other quality mule folks
  • Don't take my word for it - see what others have to say about us!  Many folks write kind letters and keep in touch.  I've picked a few to share.
  • Don't y'all leave without visiting my Christian Ministry Page:  Susan and I do what we do and we do it how we do it as a direct result of our faith.  We'd love to share our inspirations.

Full Tilt Boogie New Book !!
Part autobiography and part memoir, Full Tilt Boogie is a story of determination, love and perseverance in the face of adversity. Colorado Central magazine columnist Martha Quillen perhaps sums it up best:

“This is an incredibly honest account of a father trying to do his best in the face of uncertainty. Full Tilt Boogie overflows with love, commitment, fear, hope, and courage, and is a powerful tale of a man preparing himself to face the long haul.”

I wrote Full Tilt Boogie with reckless disregard for mass marketability or for what anybody else thinks. I totally ignored some suggestions of those close to me who read early drafts. I sent it to three publishers, all of whom turned it down saying they liked the story and liked the writing, but it just didn't fit their marketing niches and genres. I ultimately decided to self-publish. I am holding on to no presumptions other than I created this book from beginning to end using my own skills, heart and life experiences, and remained as true to myself as possible in doing so. The book is 224 pages and includes several color photographs.

Full Tilt Boogie is available in both electronic form and paperback.

So pull up a chair!  Select from our top or side menus and explore the world of Queen Valley Mule Ranch and Steve and Susan Edwards.  and always remember, we would love to hear from you!   All of our visitors have an open invitation to give us a holler on the phone or send us an email.
