Seeinspotz: Agreed. Although, a majority of them are pretty mean. I also believe that some can make great pets like horses, but in that one video, that man was wayyy too big for that zebra. Maybe they should only be rode by smaller people, unless you have one large enough.

zebra's come in many differeny sizes and some are almost as large as horses. he just happened to either have a younger one (as kevein said there was a much larger one in the back ground) or he just could have had a smaller species of zebra since there are several species

Baby, Sparta, Carmen, Henry, Hooch, Mercedes, Butterscotch

The lady I got my horse from had a zebra that was used in close contact with individuals seeking help for their mental health troubles, she was only 2 1/2 when she passed away so she was never riden, but she was very sweet, i never saw her try to bite or kick anyone.

LOL that would be funny

I have met many Zebras and none have been mean. What's with everyone on here thinking Zebras are mean...

And unpredictable? Okay I understand saying that but that really does not say anything about the Zebra, horses are just as unpredictable. Just saying....

Just like mares and stallions some say stallions are more dangerous and unpredictable I disagree. A horse is a horse. A 1000lbs ou have the same chance of getting killed by a mare then you do by a stallion, a gelding, and a zebra.

Just saying ;)

After reading this thread, I think that saying that all zebras are mean would be like me saying all Arabian horses are crazy. Just because the ones you've meet have been less than desirable doesn't mean they all are.

And like someone said, it took thousands of years for horses and dogs to be fully domesticated, and we're still catching wild mustangs and gentling them. Who knows that the future holds?
