Community Connector Blackpool Better Start

We recently held a fun day at Grange Park, the welcome addition of Real Donkeys gave the families an opportunity to meet these wonderful animals in a fun environment. Amongst the feedback we received were many of the children had never ridden on a donkey before and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We would definitely book Real Donkeys again!


Real Donkeys made our seaside day a delight! The children had so much fun and I am sure will remember the day for a long time in the future. Some children said they had never been on a donkey before but the man was so calming and reassuring that they all felt confident and excited. Children were able to pat the donkeys and learn about them too and I cannot thank you enough for the wonderful experience we have had. Organising the event was very smooth and Mark was patient and accommodating. The man who brought the donkeys to school was also fantastic and allowed us to take great photos for the children to take home. Furthermore, it was evident that the donkeys are extremely well looked after. We will definitely be re-booking and I would recommend other schools/ parties to do the same.

Thank you for a truly wonderful experience. During our Summer Holiday play scheme we had two visits from Real Donkeys and everyone loved them. The handler was so accommodating to our needs, our play scheme if for disabled children and their families and no one missed out, all children interacted with the donkeys either having a ride, stroking or even a big cuddle. This was one of the best things that we had this year and we really look forward to seeing them again next year.
Anyone thinking of hiring Real Donkey's, don't think about it, just do it, you will not be disappointed they are great.

The donkeys were very well behaved and turned out in immaculate condition. Maurice was brilliant with both donkey ‘s and the children. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon.
Will defiantly be booking again.
Thanks Kath

The staff Gemma and Steve were very pleasant to deal with too. Would highly recommend hiring these donkeys, they went down a treat with the children who attended our event. We will definitely be booking them again.
