Hobby Horse

Over the past decade, hobbyhorse riding has become a global phenomenon and a lifestyle for thousands of young people. This unique sport brings together hobbyhorse enthusiasts in strong communities, and for many young individuals, the sport can be a way to find their place in the world, especially when being young is not always easy. Despite a lack of understanding from the outside world, several courageously pursue their passion by creating colorful and imaginative hobbyhorses, each with their own names and unique personalities.

As part of the introduction process, we had a visit from Denmark’s biggest hobbyhorse riding enthusiasts, who organized a large hobbyhorse tournament for both the school staff and students.

You can see more pictures from the ring riding tournament on our website, and if you are curious about the hobbyhorse universe, we recommend the Finnish documentary film Hobbyhorse Revolution.
