THE JOY OF RIDING A DONKEY FOR CHILDREN FROM THE AGE OF 2 OR 3!
Sample the pure pleasure to be had from a gentle walk, eyes closed with one of these docile yet strong companions! Pack donkey walking – so-called because a pack saddle is placed on the donkey’s
back – is suitable for young children as well as teenagers and their parents. Little ones, up to 40 kg (≈6 stone), can hitch a ride on the donkey while the older ones lead them.
If you think that donkeys walk too slowly, think again! Once they get going, donkeys lengthen their stride and walk around 4 to 5 km/h.
Who’s the boss?
It has to be said that the grass bordering the pathways is very tempting for the donkeys who, if given the chance, will try and make frequent stops. So make sure they know who’s boss right
from the off!
