I would assume that if properly imprinted at birth a zebra would be the same as any other equine.... they are a different speces than a horse but you can cross them and get a Zorse i think its called but like the Mule its sterile.

the closest i think i'll stay is my Red Dun with her dorsal stripe and faint striping down her withers.

Amazing video of Zack the Zebra!! I never imagined anyone being able to train a zebra for riding let alone jumping or dressage.

Well, I stand corrected. Apparently zebras aren't stupid -- they can be trained!?! Wow, I had never heard of this. It must take a very determined trainer.

As for calling them stupid -- sorry to offend. When I say that something is stupid I don't mean it as an insult -- just easier than typing unintelligent, less intelligent, difficult to teach... It's also much more vague and can encompass stubborness, unwillingness.

Ledge, not true. They have more primal instincts. Not to say they aren't good animals, but the average person shouldn't have one. Kind of like wolves/wolf hybrids - definitely not for everyone.

Thats very true JDI. My friend handles her zebra very well, she has trained him very nicely, and takes no nonsense or misbehaviour. The only reason I get to handle or ride him is because he is so well trained, I could never train my own, I am no where near experienced enough lol. But as a side note, I have a wolf hybrid: an alsation x wolf, and she is quite awesome
