Sit back and enjoy showjumping bunnies like you have never seen them before. Most likely because you probably haven’t.
Showjumping rabbits are making a splash and Sweden witnessed the finest the in the bunny world recently.
It may seem hopping mad to some, but these bunnies in Scandanavia are far athletic than you might have imagined.
The crème de la crème of the rabbit world were flown into Sweden to compete in the Grand National of the pet world - rabbit showjumping.
The 'Bouncing Bunnies of Sweden' will hop into action this weekend, at London's Earls Court, going head-to-head in the new spectator sport.
Now in its third year, the Rabbit Grand National will see rabbit lovers showcase their pets' speed and agility by hopping over hurdles, all in support of Rabbit Awareness Week.
The campaign hopes to help pet owners improve rabbit welfare and encourage bunny lovers to make changes in their rabbit care routine.
