Hobbyhorse Revolution

Selma Vilhunen
 
As a concept, hobbyhorsing is not that different from other fantasy sports — some people play Quidditch, others swim while wearing mermaid tails and still others manage football teams in an imaginary NFL. But hobbyhorsing is also a real sport and a community characterized by defiance, gentleness and unabashedly positive weirdness. Hobbyhorse girls try to provide a safe space while speaking out against bullying, protecting those who still like to play make-believe and supporting those facing the athletic challenge of simultaneously pretending to be both horse and rider. Watching their flash mobs, competition and fierce defense of one another, it’s impossible not to root for them to mount wooden stick horses and ride off happily into the sunset.
