Rabbit jumping is real and it has its own 'Grand National'

Show jumping rabbits will take part in their own version of the Grand National. 

The competitors, who came from all over the world, had a practice run at a course in Harrogate, Yorkshire.

Those into rabbit jumping - and who isn't, really? - say the sport has become increasingly popular since 2011 and there are now even professional rabbit jumpers.

What a time to be alive.
