What is Vaulting?
Equestrian vaulting combines dance, gymnastics, and acrobatics by individuals and teams performed to music on a moving horse. Vaulters learn balance, flexibility, coordination, discipline, creativity and teamwork while gaining strength and working in harmony with the horse.
The horse moves in a circle on a longe line and is controlled by a longeur. Vaulters begin on stationary barrels and progress to performing on the horse at the walk and trot; experienced vaulters perform at the canter.
Willamette Valley Vaulters (WVV) will be forming a club in the 2017 season. If you are interested in trying Equestrian Vaulting, or learning more about the club, please call Theresa at (503) 939-1878.
