OK – maybe Donkey Racing isn’t much of a bonus – but I thought I’d just share it with you all (just in case you’ve not yet had a chance to see this).
The idea is straight forward: A team of two has a single donkey. One person rides the donkey (with no saddle) the length of the arena – while the other often has the rope – hopefully guiding the donkey and rider down the course. Then the teammates swap positions and the other one rides the donkey to the finish line. Easy concept – difficult in execution.
Over the years – I’ve seen a number of techniques – neither of these are uncommon.
