Children and teens led nervous rabbits with names like Princess Anna and Booty over a series of obstacles today at the Westmoreland Fair in front of a crowd of dozens of people.

It’s called rabbit ability, and not only is it cute — it’s very popular in Pennsylvania.

That’s according to Hannah Smith, a teen leader at the fair who judged the rabbit agility competition this afternoon. Smith got her start in rabbit agility at a competition held by the Pennsylvania State Rabbit Breeders Association, which has a yearly convention.

“It was an awesome experience,” she said. “Pa. is one of the top states for rabbit hopping right now. It’s kind of an honor to hold.”
