One of the things I have learned over the years...many years is that it is never the horse always the person. If the animal is doing something 'wrong' then its the rider/person that is doing the wrong thing. It always helps :) Same goes with Zebras.

Also they feed off of your energy so if you ever meet a new horse or in this cas e Zebra if you think in your head (mean stubborn, stupid beast) Guess how the animal will respond? Yup thats right it goes, "Oh so thats what you think eh? Okay lets see what I can do to meet those expectations." lol

The zebras in my avatar are semi tame; you can handfeed them, but thats it. They dont like human contact, other than for food, so in a sense they are wild :)

My neighbour and friend however, owns one... He's being trained for dressage, but he also jumps a little bit. He's awesome to take for a gallop, because he imagines hunting lions and really moves lol

Every girl wants their own LOVE STORY, I found mine... :)

Zebras are NOT for most people. They are very hard to train properly.

i think zebras are thought to be more aggressive than horses, especially the wild ones. When raised in captivity that's probably not so much of a problem, but i think the really wild ones don't put up with people. There aren't really domesticated zebras in africa, so there must be a reason. Horses and donkeys were domesticated by people all over the world, but not zebras. While i still like the idea of an odd zebra or too being ridden, i always wonder if its somehow not meant to be? They're so darn cute though....lol

wow!!! i think i need to get out more :P i only knew of zebras in africa or at the zoo. i never, ever would have thought you could own one or even train one in dressage. I have to admit this came as a total shock to me, just like when i found out you can ride mules, i feel a little pathetic

but great thread! i think im ging to do a little research!!!

me too lol!

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!
