Zebras are notoriously hard to train because as a species, they have defied domestication. They can be aggressive, and have a history of randomly attacking human trainers which has limited their use in movies and circuses.
That doesn’t mean that
people don’t continue to try training zebras and it appears that some trainers have more success than others. Sammi Jo Stohler, of Zebra Guru in Texas, discovered that Zack had a particular talent for jumping . . . when he kept jumping out of his paddock. According to their website, http://www.zebraguru.com,
