Who are we?
The “Stars of the Show” are 4 miniature donkeys! Come and meet, brothers Eric and Ernie and brothers Stan and Ollie! To find out a little about the Dinky Donkey boys please click on the “Dinky Donkey Intro’s” link on the HOME page.
Dinky Donkeys Experience was founded by Ceri Adamson, a recently retired Registered General Nurse and a diploma graduate in Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) which is a way of using donkeys in a therapeutic way to help people understand themselves, deal with difficult issues and learn communication skills! Ceri is also a Dinky Donkey fanatic!
Having experienced the joy of owning donkeys, Ceri decided to give everyone the opportunity to share the fun, learning and healing she treasures and enjoys with her beloved pets! This has led to the development of the Dinky Donkeys Experience!
Our special little donkeys are very sociable, friendly and gentle with our guests and clearly enjoy meeting everyone, adults and children alike. Each of them are quite different and brimming with character and they love the attention and cuddles! They love being talked to and they communicate back, in a non- verbal way with their beautiful eyes and by gently nuzzling and cuddling you whilst breathing calmly on your cheek.. its heartwarming! Of course donkeys also communicate in a very verbal and noisy way with their famous braying.. you’ll love it!! Come and see them for yourself!

What’s it all about?
Firstly, you don’t need prior experience of donkeys to enjoy this experience. We will support and help you to achieve your personal goals and enjoy your time with us! (Please note the donkeys are very small and cannot be ridden)
Some people who visit the donkeys are looking for the donkeys to help them feel better and cope with life’s challenges. Others are visiting to celebrate a birthday or other special event or just come to enjoy family time with the donkeys! Some kids visit during school holidays to join the Dinky Donkeys Kids Club! Some come to learn and develop personal or team building skills or even undertake AQA qualifications. Some come to spend time to get involved in caring for the donkeys including feeding, brushing and stable management.
Come and experience the Dinky Donkey Derby Obstacle Course which is a fancy dress event for adults and children.
