Rabbits hop because they have strong back legs that are good for pushing up off the ground. This enables them to move faster from any potential harm. They frequently hop in a zigzag pattern to make their scent harder for their pursuer to trail.

Rabbits do not choose to hop just as we do not choose to walk. Rabbits have longer back legs which force them to hop. When they jump, they land on their front legs and push off with their back legs to make a hop.
