There are a lot of misconceptions regarding donkeys, but the truth is that they are very smart animals and have shown their capacity in different situations. They are often recognized as headstrong animals but this is only because of their advanced sense of self-control. We have said very often that donkeys don’t always get the credit they deserve.
Even though not many people know this fact, they are very trainable animals and keep surprising us with their unique abilities and will to please their owners. Just like horses, they can be used in many disciplines but sadly most people only use them for work.
In rare circumstances we see people riding donkeys, but Camilla the girl shown in the video below is training her donkey for show jumping! Harvey the donkey seems to enjoy jumping, is very good at it, and proved everyone that the stereotypes about donkeys are wrong.
Many people got the idea that this donkey is obliged to do what he does, but Camilla assured us that Harvey won’t do anything that he doesn’t like it and only does things he is content with! All of Camilla’s efforts have finally paid off and the capable pair proved once again that hard work always pays off.
All horse trainers know how hard is to train a horse for show jumping and that’s why Camilla deserves all the recognition she’s getting. Don’t miss the opportunity to watch the video posted below and share it with your equestrians friends to show this talented duo some love. They really deserve it!
