Au programme

We will start out at the barn and get Jericho ready for the hike by grooming him and getting his packs on. He absolutely loves all this attention and especially likes his long ears stroked. If we are lucky he may even treat us with one of his loud brays that can be heard throughout the neighborhood or take a roll in the dirt right before we groom him as though he is throwing down a challenge. As we do this I will give some information about wild donkeys and Jericho's background as well as safety tips. From there we will head out on an approximately 2 mile hike through Portuguese Bend stopping along the way for the many photo opportunities of the Palos Verdes coastline. I will talk about the unique Portuguese Bend area, which is the oldest continuous landslide in California, and the wildlife oasis this has created. Along the way we may see peacocks, hawks, rabbits, owls and even the occasional coyote. Water and snacks are available anytime in Jericho's packs but we better not forget to bring some carrots for him too. When we arrive back at the barn we will take off Jericho's gear and brush him down again as a thank you for his work. We will be traveling at the donkey's pace which allows you to see the world from a different perspective. So bring your sense of adventure and don't be afraid to get a little dirty!

I have been part of the equine community in Rancho Palos Verdes for the last 40 years, spending much of that time boarding horses in the unique area of Portuguese Bend. I had owned horses for decades but what my husband really wanted was a donkey. So 14 years ago we purchased Jericho as an 18 month old. His mother had been part of a wild burro roundup by the Bureau of Land Management and he was born in captivity shortly after. He came to us wild and afraid but through on-going training and attention he has become a neighborhood celebrity who loves to greet every person he sees. I own an authentic sawbuck and packs so Jericho looks like the real deal. I host regular walks with friends and family where Jericho gets to be a "beast of burden" and carry all of our water, snacks, jackets and phones while we enjoy the sweeping ocean views.

Le lieu

We will be hiking in a part of Rancho Palos Verdes called Portuguese Bend. It is the oldest continuous landslide in California. Due to the movement, the area could not be overly developed leaving a large wildlife area with a unique and ever-changing landscape. Portuguese Bend overlooks the Pacific Ocean and on some days you can see pods of dolphins and whales passing in the channel between the mainland and Catalina Island.

This is a fun experience with a live animal so anything can happen. Please remember to wear sturdy shoes and be prepared to hike both up and down hills on dirt trails. All guests need to be able to finish the hike as Jericho does not take passengers.
