Good news for the horseless horse lovers out there. You can compete in your favorite equestrian sports without investing all of your time and money into horse ownership. These are slightly modified versions of horse sports, but it’s better than nothing, right?
Rabbit hopping! Who knew this was a competitive event? They’ve got everything covered, from show jumping to puissance, and even a version of the long jump (yes, there really was once an equestrian long jump competition.)
Obviously rabbits are natural jumpers, but how do you train them to do this? Are they breeding elite leporine athletes in Denmark? Where can you get a crochet ear net for your bunny so that he can display his sponsor’s logo?
Rabbit hopping is impressive, but canine dressage…now there’s a sport.
I’ve got nothing snarky to say. That’s just plain impressive.
Happy Friday, everyone!
