    I’d love to do something like this with my mini’s… they are a bonded trio – sisters and a son… and are 15, 18 and 20…. they don’t seperate well, and not sure I could handle all 3 at once… :-) sure looks like fun though.

    I am wondering where I can find a surcingle and bridle as you have pictured here?

      I got their harness bridles from and their Ground Driving bridles from The bridles are Silver Fox Raised Snaffle bridles and I have punched extra holes in them to make them fit. You can also get their Ozark Mini/Pony Surcingle, but I am not sure if it would fit, or not. I have never used theirs. I had my surcingles made by my saddle maker especially for my mini donkeys. If you would like a picture of one, please email me at and I would be happy to send one to you.

    For my mini donkey I would like to start training this way.

      It has been a wonderful way to train Augie and Spuds. They have impeccable manners and will go anywhere and do anything that I want them to do. If you haven’t already, visit my website at and look in the various sections under TRAINING for how to do the exercises in a logical and sequential way, especially under TRAINING/ASK MEREDITH/NUTRITION & DIET/ TRAINING/TRAINING TIPS and TRAINING/ANOTHER AUGIE & SPUDS ADVENTURE (scroll down to the beginning).
