How to start hobbyhorsing

 

Hobbyhorsing. What is hobbyhorsing? Does it have to be something? 

It's funny to think that still a few years ago, these were questions that arose when we mentioned hobbyhorsing. And, of course it doesn't have to be something. The only reason why it’s hobbyhorsing is that it has become so popular. And just like it is with everything else, when many people are doing the same thing, the hobby starts evolving.

And with hobbyhorsing it has evolved to something very beautiful. There are almost no limitations on how far you can go with this hobby. Did you know that you can become a National champion in riding dressage with a hobby horse? Alisa Aarniomäki is living proof of this.

And think about the joy when just taking your hobby horse for a ride, no pressure, no goals. Just riding. What a span of possibilities. Would I go to the park… maybe there are some friends with their hobby horses... we could go cross-country riding... or just chill on the park bench… or maybe we could make a few jumps over some low obstacles… or over the bench as Eric does=)... maybe Susy is there with her horse that is always going in directions where Susy doesn't want to go, and we are all laughing… or maybe I’ll just go home and plan that stable with wooden doors for my hobby horse…

All between those imagined happenings and a National Champion. Everything is possible. But how does it start?

It all starts with a person and a Hobby Horse. Simple as that!
