Equestrian Vaulting Camp - FULL

An equestrian sport that is growing in popularity, Vaulting combines dance and gymnastics performed on the back of a moving horse. The activity promotes balance, confidence and a oneness with the horse in a safe, supportive environment. Many students have taken vaulting lessons as a means of improving their riding skills. Others find it a unique and challenging sport in itself. 

Each morning will begin with stretching, muscle-building and team-building exercises, moving to the vaulting barrel, then moving to the horse.

9 a.m. - noon

Ages:

6-18 years
