Care Donkeys

Our group of extra specially trained care donkeys enjoy hospital calls, care home visits and spending time at special needs schools where the donkey's loving, kind and quiet nature is given to providing emotional and physical benefits for all. Donkeys have a unique presence and engagement with people and provide a truly wonderful surprise to make someone's day.


Educational Donkeys

Teachers can’t believe the interaction our donkeys encourage when we visit schools, often amongst pupils who may otherwise not be known for having the confidence to take part. They often see relaxation and calming results for those in need of focus. We inspire discussion and share intriguing facts and stories about the children’s new friends. Everyone can take a brush, hold and help lead these big-hearted creatures too. We find that inviting the children out of the classroom for positive interaction with animals imparts responsibility and empathy and we get great pleasure from what we do.


Children’s Rides

Donkey rides have been a long established entertainment and attraction for years. In fact they have been available in the UK since 1886. It is probable that the donkeys offered to ride on were originally working draught animals in the cockle industries around the coast. Back then UK donkeys carried adults too… thankfully our donkeys will never be asked to do that. Children riding at a nice walking pace is just perfect for our four legged friends. Our donkeys look great and they love their days out as much as the children do. When our donkeys are on tour we pride ourselves on the excellent feedback from the event organisers and families we meet up and down the country. Here at Jenny’s Donkeys we’re Scotland's only string of fully licensed professional riding donkeys and we believe we stand out on top nationally by providing the whole pristine package for any and all occasions. Our diary does fill up in advance so please do contact us with your date(s) as soon as possible if you’re looking to have us at your event. 

The Wedding Donkeys

“Thank you for the treasured presence of pure friendship and loyalty...”

Adored by you and your guests both tiny and tall. Traditionally your gorgeous mascots are said to bring luck and to protect and guide you on your journey. They carry a small bespoke keepsake with them on their bridles just for you to take with you into the future as a symbol of love and good fortune. Photographs are priceless and unique. They can welcome you and your guests and if required can wear saddle baskets full of petals for your flower girls to sprinkle, deliver buttonholes or sweeties and keep your smallest guests amused for the whole day. Why not let us saddle up after the ceremony so the children can enjoy rides and add more extra special memories to your big day?


Happy Donkeys

Welfare and care is our top priority. Our donkeys are approved by registered Vets each year to ensure excellent standards of care. Our expert team at the stables ensure our donkeys are turned out bright and beautiful every time and our fully trained friendly staff accompany every donkey on hire.
