Meet Zack The Amazing Show Jumping Zebra
I use to think I wanted a monkey....NOW I want a ZEBRA. Zack the Jumping Zebra is such a sweetheart...watch the video and fall in love (especially if you're a horse lover)!
After Zack the zebra kept jumping out of his field, Sammi Jo Stohler of Willis, Texas, figured he might have a knack for having fun over fences. “I had to build an 8ft. fence around the property because he kept jumping out,” she said. “He can clear 5ft. without a problem; he just walks up to a fence and ends up on the other side of it. I said, ‘I bet he can do it with a rider,’ and yep, it was no problem.”
Stohler grew up riding horses on a ranch in eastern Oregon. She embarked on a career of training horses and gradually expanded to other, more exotic, species. With Zack’s ability, Stohler saw the opportunity to prove that zebras can do many different things. " I always like to see what I can accomplish,” she said.
