At a place I used to train at there was a vaulting group (mostly kids) that ran out of the barn.

One day they got a pack horse to try out as a vaulter. They didn't want to be putting their kids (all under 12) on the horse to see how broke it was, and at 16 I was 90lbs soaking wet... So I got to test ride it to see if it was broke (it didn't buck, but it also had no idea what turning or going from the leg was... haha) and then hop on him in vaulting gear =) It was super fun and once he learned the voice commands on the lunge he was awesome!! Totally used to having things all over his body from packing and because he was never broke to rider's aids, never tried to do anything like go faster, or turn from what the vaulters were doing.
It's tons of fun - I wish I had gotten into as a kid, but now I would probably kill myself hahaha.

Looks like you had a blast, Allison!!

Yup, just like I figured.....SORE sore sore!!

The worst part is when I first got on that wide bad boy, I felt like I was doing the splits. I was reprimanded almost immediately. When we first went off I tried to use my leg to yield him away from the lunger. I was told NEVER to use any "riding" cues on the horse. The last thing you want is to ask him to be sensitive to the leg. Yep, that makes sense.

I want to try it all at the canter. It has to be easier than the trot.

And yes it was january in Scotland, it was absolutly freezing hence the winter woolies!






All at walk I think! That last photo shows why I was distracted, the guy with the red scarf is the one that was teaching us. I think we all get very very giggly!

Looks like you had a great time! I would love to do actual vaulting...used to do all sorts of stupid stunts on my horses when I was younger, that could have passed as vaulting, but definitely not as pretty, or as 'safe'...hahaha!

You know there isn't anything you can't ask of those kids that saw you do that. You're a great example to them to try different things and not take themselves too seriously.

Alli - well there you go. Talk about toes up heels down.

By the way - that hairy black cob just looks my old friend Joe - who has long gone from this world. Maybe he has been resurrected!

What a brave woman you are.
