She is beautiful! I had a Zorse about 10 years ago. I got her as a 2 year old that hadn't been handled much. She came around quickly but after about 3 years while I was working on saddling her, something spooked her, she got loose, and ran through a fence. After that day her wild side came out. All it took was that one spook. She was always kept in normal wire fencing and was a perfect angel for everything. They do always have that wild instinct. I would still love to own another one some day.

I found a not so great picture of Tigger, the girl I used to own. She is half QH.

not sure why exactly people do this, other than the zebra stripes. Not my thing. easily trainable horse, or hard to train striped cross breed? hmmm, not such a hard choice...

She is awesome! But, I definitely would not want to train anything with zebra blood. I'd imagine she is every bit as flighty as they say she is. *runs off to read her page*

Out of curiosity, where did you find her mc90? She's beautiful!

I love a good zorse here and there. (:

Now THAT would be an interesting training competition. We have OTTB and mustang training contests, but none for zorses. It would definitely be interesting!

If I could get a nice Sport Zorse cross.. haha, That would be a dream. Would make for a fantastic jumper, I think.

I got Tigger from a breeding farm in Colorado. I bought her sight unseen and had her shipped to FL when she was going on 2 years old. She hadn't had much handling at that point and was quite skittish. Zorses are definitely quite different and much more stubborn in the training/ trusting department. It took about another year after her incident to calm back down and begin trusting again. I ended up selling her to a lady who just wanted a nice lawn ornament and pet. Owning her was a great experience. She definitely taught me a lot of patience.

My reasoning as to why I wanted a zorse is that it was always a dream of mine to own a zebra. I just wanted the challenge and something different. I figured that a zorse may be a bit easier to work with. I can't speak for everyone who has a zorse/ zebra or has had one though. I do know that a lot of patience and understanding is a must and they are not for everyone. If i could do it over again, I would get a younger or handled zorse.

I just realized that in the picture I am not wearing shoes :/ This explains my stubborn side as well lol.

Through selective breeding and strict guidelines wild horses were domesticated. It's only a matter of time before zebras and zorses/zonkeys are seen as reliable riding/driving companions too. It's already started so with a bit more tweeking and weeding out the unwanted traits it could happen soon rather than later. And I'm totally putting my name on the waiting list. Even for one of the 'undesirable' ones. I love a challenge.

Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.
