Steve Stiert

Donkeys have long been portrayed as stubborn, willful animals, frustrating their owners with their persistent obstinance, but Steve Stiert – who runs Donkey Park in Ulster Park – knows better. He offers programs and services – like Little Brays of Sunshine therapy donkeys – specifically designed to help people surmount challenges, training donkeys and human alike in the fine art of patience, and working magic on a daily basis. We follow Steve and several of his program participants as they practice and prepare for a donkey show at the Ulster County Fairgrounds.
