Sometimes, a trend pops up out of nowhere. This is one of those times.

We here at XXL have noticed a surprising amount of rappers on horses lately. There's no doubt that jumping on horseback is the least hood thing you can do, but plenty of MCs have posted photos of themselves doing it anyway.

For some in the hip-hop community, horseback riding is a vacation activity or a chance to try something new.
But for others, the equestrian life is strictly business. Iggy Azalea, for example, posted on Instagram last week that she bought two horses for her home in California. Born in a small town in New South Wales, Australia, Iggy seems to be getting back to her country roots in taking up this new hobby.

Here are some hilarious examples of hip-hop bouncing around on horses. Giddy up!
