Hobbyhorse Competitions Are A Thing And We Want In!

And now for something completely different! Remember hobbyhorses? You know, those sticks that had a toy horse's head on the end, and kids pretended they were really riding? Well, in Finland, there are actually hobbyhorse races. Teenage girls first invented this hobby horse dressage, in which the rider’s lower body prances and gallops like a horse, while the upper body remains erect and motionless like a rider. This evolved into a big deal with coaches and students and competitions, with an annual hobbyhorse champion crowned every summer.
