Vaulting

So i'm thinking about trying vaulting, it looks really interesting and I woudlnt need a horse to do it on since I have a club (the Warm Beach Vaulters) in my area. Does anyone have any info on vaulting like how flexible you need to be, types of movements, etc? I'm 14 (almost 15) and am not a super good rider but still have quite a bit of balance. Thanks for any info.

HRTV had a special on it a while ago. It looks very interesting; I would love to try it if I were more flexible! If I were you, I would be stretching several times a day and running or bicycling to build up muscle. I've heard arm strength is very important. Lots of work at the barn should help with that

I did it once when I was about 16 for a summer. I would of done it longer but that's as long as I had access to it.

I worked under a girl from Austria who was a multi champion rider. She taught me a lot in those few weeks and was super strong. Helped that I was strong and short so she could kind of toss me into position. I loved learning and was getting pretty good at it. Do LOTS of stretching, especially in the legs.
Good luck and enjoy!!

I have a young riding student who studies and competes in vaulting. I am not her vaulting coach. She travels from NC to Va to a coach there. She also does some gymnastics, which really helped in her vaults.

Here she is practicing on her barrel horse at her house

It is a wonderful way to have fun on a horse and she has only been doing it a little while. If you have the desire....do it!! You will not regret it.
