a few camp vaulting pictures (pic heavy)

these are just a few pictures of me vaulting at camp. I'm nowhere near very good but I thought it was cool and I worked pretty hard.

The first few are a performance we did for the parents on the barrels

oh gosh! my face is quite red...

just a picture of a practice on the horse during the week

oh how I love my orange pants. Those last two were another end of week performances. It was drizzling a bit so the pictures look fuzzy.

anyway, thats it for now! I won't have the chance to vault again for a while so this is it for now. Hope you like the pics!!

By the way, that lovely vaulting horse you see there is Moose. We love him very much!

Hey!! Those are great!! I've always wanted to try it!!!

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.

There are special shoes, but I haven't ordered them yet. Right now I just wear jazz shoes. Vaulting shoes are nice because they have treads on the bottom so you don't slip.

Barnrat- thats so cool! It;s such a rush when you do something right. It's so rewarding to know that you did it
