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.

​For more about Safety and Vaulting see: https://www.americanvaulting.org/safety/

What is Vaulting?

The art of dance and gymnastics on a moving horse! 

In addition to being a fun sport, vaulting promotes and builds: Balance, Responsibility, Team work, Safety, Confidence and Strength

Who Can Vault?

Vaulting is fun for individuals of many different ages and abilities. Previous horsemanship is not required to try vaulting. 

Vaulting Attire

Unlike other equestrian sports where boots and helmets are necessary, vaulting requires leggings/spandex, a form fitting shirt and either tennis shoes or vaulting shoes.
