Have you ever wondered about riding a zebra? They’re beautiful. They are so much like a horse. They are dapper and bold.
The Limerick Post told us about one local man who not only wondered, he went out and made it happen.
Johnny Cross, a local horse trainer, has since been turning heads around the city by strolling around with his new zebra. Where did he get it? Johnny bought the zebra in Holland to see if he could break it and turn it into a respectable horse. This is supposedly a near-impossibility.
How have efforts gone to train his magnificent animal? Well, let’s just say that Johnny isn’t planning on racing him. With typical Irish wit and understatement, Johnny summed up his experience by saying, “He’s as good as you could expect for a zebra.” But he added that the beautiful animal makes a very nice pet. Who knew?
If you’d like a more traditional four-legged ride, we suggest several horse-back riding experiences that are…well, they don’t involve a zebra, but they are amazing!
