HORSEBACK VAULTING

Presented by Muddy Creek Meadows Riding Stable

Equestrian vaulting is most often described as dance and gymnastics on the back of a moving horse. Vaulters compete as individuals, pairs and teams. They perform various movements on the back of the horse, such as stands, hangs, handstands, rolls and more. Novice vaulters perform at the walk and trot while higher level vaulters canter.  Vaulting competitions consist of compulsory exercises and choreographed freestyle moves done to music.  Come join us to explore what vaulting is all about.  Watch demonstrations from our vaulters and learn about this amazing sport.
