Donkey Agility at Clovelly

Report from Briony Wild

Six donkeys attended a very successful South West  Donkey agility Day at Clovelly . We were very lucky to have Vanessa Bee from the Horse Agility Club to teach us . The donkeys and owners really enjoyed themselves .  Agility is something donkeys can do very well as they respond better to being "asked "and not forced  In the morning we all had chance to try all the equipment with Vanessa's  help . After lunch we had a competition for us all  . All the equipment is simple and easy to make at home so hopefully we will see more donkeys entering competitions  We must thank Sue and Bart from Clovelly for organising it all for us and Vanessa for her brilliant teaching . Here in the South West it is  something we will be doing again. Perhaps a competition between Regions ??  Lets get more donkeys out there doing Agility

Donkey Packing in the Pennines..

Carol Limmer and Olwen Brown have been on their travels again with their donkeys Echo and  Colin.
Carol writes.
This year 3 days on the old packhorse trails between Burnley and Hebden Bridge.  We packed just under 30 miles over some quite desolate and challenging terrain.  Stunning views but definitely a trip to undertake only in the summer months.
