From what I've heard, zebras have weaker backs and haunches than horses so they can't handle as much work.

My best friends son owns a zebra. He rides and does tricks. Does zebra shows all the time with him. If you pm me I can put you in touch with him and you can find out what you want or need to know.

Jared has owned Kenya for 5-6 years I suppose.

Where the heck are there zebra shows?

I don't think very many people actually do anything with their zebras because they are, truthfully, pretty nasty-tempered as a general rule.

I too have had dreams as a child of riding a zebra. Very cool indeed.

So he does a circus act with it. If that's what you meant, than you should have said that instead of using the word "show." Or even clarified that he was doing a trick show for fairs and schoolchildren.

spurstop just calling it what Jared calls it :) I will tell Jared the forum doesn't approve of him calling his zebra doing tricks a zebra show and that he needs to promote it as a circus act :) LOL he can't take it to rodeos even though Kenya ropes both ends... horses are scared of him LOL

I'm not sure why I need a PM AND a reply here. But now that I've seen you've replied here, I'll answer you here as well.

When you are referring to taking a zebra to a "zebra show" then people are going to infer that you are talking about an actual competitive event. Your friend is not competing in zebra shows, because as far as we can all tell there aren't any. He is doing exhibitions with his animal at fairs and such.

Being clear in what you are trying to relay through the written word is important if you want people to have an idea of what you are talking about.
