The answer is neither one.
The event's organizer says the donkeys are trained to pay more attention to the trainer than the person on their back.

[IN Q= They can stop]

((THEY CAN STOP AND GO ON EITHER A WHISTLE OR A HAND COMMAND, SO THE DONKEY'S JUST LISTEN TO THE TRAINER AND HE WILL TELL THEM WHAT TO DO, TO GO OR STOP IT IS PRETTY FUNNY))

[OUT Q=It is pretty funny]

The rough and bumpy ride did not turn away the jockies.
Almost 50 riders took the challenge to make it to across the finish line, no word on the winner.
