    I also like zebras...Caped out and on the wall

    I would give zebra training a whirl, after I do research of course. This animal is not just a stripped horse as alot of people are applying.

    They require a certain way of training, a certain knowledge level that most don't possess. They can definitely be more difficult to train as they aren't nearly as domesticated as horses. Much akin to saying that a lot of wolves or other wild dogs, or their hybrids wouldn't be a good choice of dog for most people.

    I must say that it is actually not that hard to train one. A friend of mine owns one, and he is being trained for dressage. Im not saying it isnt hard, but not as hard as some people believe. It is rather like training a VERY stubborn horse, my friend told me once. The first time I rode him, he acted up a bit, but once I got him to understand that I am the boss, he was as laid back as my mare. I now go at least twice a month to give him a spin, as she is to big for him... Im teaching him to jump :) and he's quite good. I will try get pictures next time I go

    Are Zebras like donkeys or mules at all? Just wondering.

    I know people with a Zonkey, he's the cutest darn thing! He is broke to ride but can be quite the handful if the mood suits him. They do more driving with him, at that he is wonderful. His personality is much different than I'm used to with my quarters, but that may be as much donk as zebra, I haven't spent much time around donkeys either. He's very opinionated and they say it takes him 10 to 1 the amt of times on a correction as it does any of their horses because he is very strong willed. He's adorable and I love watching him in their pasture (he is definitely the alpha) but don't think I'd own one.
