** H-STYLE HARNESS & LEASH SETS FOR SALE **


In 2014 the American Hopping Association for Rabbit & Cavies (AHARC) was officially
recognized as a National Specialty Club of the American Rabbit Breeders Assoc.

I became interested in the sport in 2013 and purchased a course at the Wichita KS ARBA Convention from Joan Nobel (former President).
I've become involved with AHARC as their Treasurer and a former District Director. I have held Hopping Demo's and Competitions at the NYR&CBA State Convention, New York State rabbit shows and State Fair as well.

"Root Beer" my first hopping rabbit. Here he is at 2016 Lebanon P.A. show

I have trained some of my rabbits to Hop and found that even my Flemish Giants enjoy the sport!

Hopping course (will be much improved for 2016) at the NYR&CBA State Convention show.
Gail Smith and Becky Combe were our winners in 2014 and Gail shared the title in 2015.



In 2015 at the NY State Fair poultry could not be shown due to avian influenza. So I used the extra space to set up
a Rabbit Hopping demo area. Our daily demonstrations were a hit with the public!

"Rootbear" was the star! He is my best hopping rabbit - an English Spot Rhinelander sport buck I got from Gail Smith.
