ok, you old-timers probably know all about this and will  laugh at me, but this is the first time I've seen this sport and i nearly fell out of my chair at work. again. Those bunnies aren't being chased over the jumps, most of them are out in front of their people and pulling on the leash to get to the jumps, I have never seen anything like that.....

just go to Youtube and type in 'show jumping bunny' and see how many come up....lol

My Bunny Burrow is full! Pringles & Toby, Daisy & Lola, and my senior citizens Hershey & Simba.
The piggies are back, add Brownie and Sweetpea to the mix.

It's not widely known, but it is amazing!!   I love watching it, and there is actually a group just about an hour from here that does this.  I have to take some time and actually go and watch it!!

Here's a direct link to one of the ones your talking about on YouTube.  Really interesting!

I'd never heard of this before... I think that's AWESOME! The rabbits seem so enthusiastic (especially in the video BinkyBunny showed) - the second the owner puts them down, they sprint! How do you suppose you train a rabbit to do that?

So cute, my boyfriend and I had a good laugh over that one

I guess certain breeds are better at than others.  There is a training process that I read somewhere, can't remember, but I bet if you google it, you'll find a ton of info about it.  It's actually very interesting.
