Vaulters perform simple and experienced gymnastic maneuvers on “Heyoka”, our Belgian-Haflinger gentle giant, and our black and white Friesian paint, “Taj”. Stunts are executed holding the handles of the surcingle. One instructor teaches while the other lunges the horse in a circle. Vaulting is a great confidence builder. Practice begins on the vaulting barrel where campers learn basic seat, mount and dismount, and several stunts. More advanced moves are the flag, swan, stand, arabesque, prince and doubles tricks with a friend! Campers have even invented their own moves before. Vaulting is a safe and fun horsemanship challenge.
Enrollment for Vaulting is limited and required before January 1.
