Anyone else?
Does anyone else reeeeallllly want to ride a zebra before they die? I know I sure do!:-P

Has anyone here ever ridden one? if so, what was it like?!

I'd love to hear stories about the time you rode an interesting equine, zebra, zorse, mammoth donkey, or anything in between. or just a crazy horse/mule/donkey ride.

If you ever do it...take pictures.
I have a DD who wants to swim with dolphins...and bite one on the dorsal fin, so to each her own.

I'd imagine they're like riding a donkey so cant say it appeals
I rode a camel once and it was dreadful, my sister too - she was so terrified she peed herself.

... I really want a zebra.... I don't know why. I hear they are a pain in the butt, but I gotta name picked out and everything. Name will be Zweifel Baurboom, and will be called ZB for short.

Lol!!! I have no idea what I'd call mine, but I really want to ride/own a zebra!! They're SOOO cool!!!! Now I'm going to have to go see how big they are and if anyone's ever ridden one....

They are more or less large pony sized. They are rideable, but I hear they are real flighty. There is a trainer around here that will train them, she's got pictures of her jumping with them, and other such. (I dont know her, and not sure how i came across her site) I just think it would be cool. ZB the Zebra prancing around with his (yes, it'll be a he) spikey striped mane, be my little punk rocker pony.

Apparently, you can buy them from anywhere between 1500 and 3000$ (females are more expensive), and aren't nearly as uncommon as I thought. There somewhere... I think in south Texas, that breeds and sells all kinds of exotics- including zebras, different deer types, camels, buffalo, etc.

(Not that I have that kinda cash lying around, but is not nearly as expensive as I thought).

Cool!!!! Someday, I WILL ride one!!! It'll be SOOO much fun!! He (or she) might be named Zeeby and will be my dream zebra pony!! =D
Haha not really, although a girl can dream!!

Just for fun, go to Youtube, and type in "Zack the Zebra" - there is the neatest video a gal has made of she and her beloved Zebra, Zack. He appears to be about 14 hands, and is so proud of himself! She does everything with him that one does with their horse. Really neat! :)

I'd like a zebra as a pet, but I can't say I'd ever want to get on one!!

I have always wanted to swim with dolphins. My sister got to do it when she went to Mexico, she said it was awesome.
