Vaulting is dance & gymnastics on the back of a moving horse while it is being controlled by a lunger. Vaulting is NOT “trick riding” or “horse pole vaulting”. Vaulting is rooted in ancient military training and has been around for centuries, many riding programs, and throughout Europe, require vaulting before riding as it facilitates strength, balance & harmony needed for safe & successful riding. It is also one of only 8 disciplines recognized internationally by FEI (Federation Equestre Internationale).
