Donkey Training

Eseltraining

We start with the basic training by each donkey:

Muscle building and gymnasticise is the focus of our donkey training.

Every donkey, no matter if a pack donkey or a mount donkey, needs slowly to build up proper muscles to be able to carry its load. Good physical condition, muscles and flexibility increase the carrying capacity of a donkey and extend its working life.

Muscle building and gymnastics training is a prerequisite to any donkey work. We have made in recent years great experience in this field training many donkeys.

Pace and Gait change Training is also a very important part of the donkey training and you need to spend more time and effort on the pace and gaits with the donkeys than working with horses.

A light and balanced movement in all gaits and pace without compulsion is another important requirement for training mount donkeys next to muscle building and gymnastics training.
