I attempted to ride my unbroken irish donkey jenny about a month ago, she couldn't care less which I was surprised over as she's never had anyone on her in her life, I just wrapped a leadrope around her neck and jumped on. I'm 15 5'6 and weigh 49kg so weight wasn't an issue with her, only problem was getting the thing to stop! Eventually I ended up making a dive off her. ha...ha..

I use to have a donkey and trained him to ground drive. Never rode him - felt I was too heavy even if he was technically a mammoth. His new owner finished him out to both cart and saddle.

I found him to be very easy to train and work with. You can't lose your temper with them or force them - just keep an even temper and patience and he seemed to pick everything up extremely quickly.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

Thank you :) Chehalis! You are up next to Caber Farms :) We should ride sometime. It's so hard to find people to ride with :P Summer's a comin'!

Ah, yes, so donkey's. My, they are different than horses. She's great though :) and soooooo cute. I've finally gotten used to her braying.
