We believe the Olympic dream should be available to everyone! Sign the petition to have Hobbyhorse included as an Olympic sport in the Paris 2024 Games.

According to FEI Secretary Ivana Trothof, "The single biggest barrier to participation in horse sport is the punitive cost. Most people simply can’t afford a horse, let alone one capable of competing at an Olympic Games. So we thought, why not eliminate the horse altogether?”

The move, she said, would grant universal access to horse sport.

“Football [‘soccer’ to North Americans] is the most popular sport in the world and it has everything to with access—you just need a ball and a flat bit of land to take part,” she said. “With hobbyhorse, the barrier is even lower. Anyone with a stick can conceivably train for the Olympics!”

SUPPORT THE CAUSE! Hobbyhorse for Paris 2024!
