I know a gal who dabbles in horsetraining and colt starting who did some work on a Zorse. She rode him just like a horse, English and Western, and he did really well. He was really pretty, sort of a dusty dun color with faint stripes all over, except his head, and a little darker striping over his hips and down his legs. His mane grew straight up, just like a zebra. He got along well with their other horses and animals, and she never had a training issue with him beyond what a normal young horse does.
