'Hobbyhorsing' craze in Scandinavia takes horsing around to new level

There's a new craze in Scandinavia that's taking horsing around to a whole new level. It's called "hobbyhorsing."

Good Morning America highlighted the growing craze, where people compete in all sorts of things while riding horses on a stick.

Ten thousand athletes in Finland are getting ready to take part in a national competition this month. Riders will try to impress judges with their equestrian skills, including style, posture and show jumping.

There's even a new documentary called "Hobbyhorse Revolution." It shows how riders decorate their hobbyhorses, name them and even drape blankets over them at night.
