Welcome to our first Hobby Horse Tournament!

What is Hobby Horse?
Competitive hobby horsing originates in Finland and has more than 10,000 active participants. Competitions have been seen repeatedly on mainstream media outlets and social media platforms, even earning coverage from networks and programs on ESPN and ABC, and in publications like The Wall Street Journal.
Riders participating in competitive hobby horsing – a toy consisting of a stick with a model horse head – perform and mimic the movements and technicality of horseback riding in the disciplines of show jumping, hunters, and dressage. They then translate that to their stick horse, where judges will mark and score their rounds. Ribbons will be given for first through sixth place. Champion and Reserve will be given for each age division in Show Jumping, Hunters and Dressage.
