Don’t confuse “lowly and riding on a donkey” with “lowly because he’s riding on a donkey” or “riding on a donkey because he’s lowly.” These aren’t the same thing.

Check your history. Horses are used in war. Donkeys in peace or non-war business. It’s not a poor-man’s transportation.

Then there’s the issue of Jesus specifically asking his disciples to get a donkey with its foal in order to try to fulfill the prophecy. Once again, he was making a statement. One strong & bold enough to get people’s attention. Sort of a Toruk-Makto kind of thing. Hardly something you do when you’re humble.
