What is Vaulting ?
Vaulting combines gymnastics and dance on the back of a moving horse at a walk, trot, or canter. In addition to being a fun chance to work with horses, vaulting helps build confidence balance, strength & coordination. Vaulting may be an individual or team sport with up to three Vaulter’s on the Vaulting horse at one time.
Vaulting Lesson Includes ~ The Vaulting lessons usually starts out with the vaulters catching, grooming and tacking up the horse with the older, more experienced vaulter helping the new ones. The vaulters then warm up and stretch while the coach warms up the horse on the circle. The vaulters enter the circle with the coach and begin taking turns training on the horse. While waiting for their turn on the horse vaulters can practice and try out new moves on the vaulting barrels that simulate the size and shape of the horse without the movement. Vaulting teaches children and adults to move in harmony with the horse, balance, flexibility, strength and team work skills, Vaulting also teaches children the basics of working with and taking care of horses, therefore making it a excellent activity for children that would like to get involved with horses. Vaulting is for ages 4 and up.
Our Vaulting Horses ~ The vaulting horse is the most valuable member of the team. The horse must have a very special temperament and comfortable paces. It takes at least a year to train a horse for Vaulting and then a lot of ongoing work to maintain their training and fitness. The value and respect for the horse is very much instilled in the vaulters throughout their training.
