Is Vaulting Safe? YES!

Vaulting is one of the safest sports with horses. An instructor controls the horse throughout each lesson, while another instructor assists and spots the vaulter. Horses are fitted with non-slip pads and surcingles with large handles. Vaulting is done in a controlled environment where "safety first" is the motto for each vaulter.
