Rabbit show jumping

In rabbit show jumping — quite possibly the cutest sport ever invented — trained rabbits leap over obstacles of varying heights and lengths. The sport began in the 1970s in Sweden, and today Scandinavia has more than 50 rabbit show jumping clubs. The activity has caught on in the U.K. and America, but there are few international competitions because the rules differ from country to country.
