"Our family was so excited to go on a donkey hike with the Woodford family! Our children love animals but had never spent time with donkeys before. They are such expressive animals and our guides were great. They helped us learn how to handle the donkeys on the trail, how to speak to donkeys and understand them. The love that our guides have for their animals was so clear and it made us love donkeys too!" -Andrew
"The donkeys were just what I needed to reduce my stress levels and help me feel joyful. The Woodfords were also great companions on our walk telling us stories and sharing information about their beloved animals. The donkeys were great animals to bring a sense of calm to our family: steady, calm, and tolerant of much petting!" - Amanda
