What is Rabbit Hopping?
Your rabbit jumps over hurdles in a course while you walk or run alongside the course. The rabbit has to be on a harness and leash.
Rabbit hopping started in Sweden in about 1980. It is just starting to get popular in the United States now.
2018 Celebrity Rabbit Hopping at the PA Farm Show
Rebecca and Cotton Candy competed in the Celebrity Rabbit Hopping Contest at the Pennsylvania Farm Show on January 7th 2018.
The contest was aired live on PCN (Pennsylvania Cable Network).
Cotton Candy and Rebecca were paired with State Senator Leanne Krueger-Braneky. Cotton Candy came in a tie for second place and had to have a "hop off" tie breaker.
Cotton Candy won and therefore won second place for the overall contest. This was his first time hopping at the Farm Show. It was very exciting!

Your rabbit has to be wearing an H-style harness and be on a leash (except for high jump).
You can’t touch your rabbit with your feet, only your hands.
Your rabbit has to stay on the course and go in the right direction at all times.
Your rabbit must be at least four months old to hop.
If the rabbit knocks a bar off the jump it counts as a fault.
The judges time how long it takes the rabbit to complete the course.
Each rabbit gets to run the course 3 times. The judges count the best run.
The winning rabbit is the one with the least faults. If there is a tie between rabbits then the fastest time wins.
