Equestrian Vaulting

Pony Gang Equestrian Vaulting lesson in Camden South Carolina

Classes will start in September 2020

We offer Horse Vaulting classes in the afternoon 

 

What is Vaulting? 

Vaulting is also called gymnastic on horseback or gymnastics with horses. 

This sport combines gymnastics, acrobatics, team spirit and love for horses - maybe just the right thing for your child? 

When it comes to equestrian sport, most parents think of riding, jumping, maybe dressage - only a very few think of vaulting. 

 

If your child loves horses, has a great urge to move and likes action, vaulting can be just the right sport. And if you have concerns about the risk of injury, just watch a training session. You will be amazed at how naturally the little ones climb back on the horse when they tumble down!

What is Trick Riding? 

Trick riding, did not actually originate from the United States. It began as a style of riding developed by the famous Cossack soldiers as a war time strategy used to out maneuver enemies on the battlefield. As Cossack generations immigrated to the U.S., trick and fancy riding was immediately adopted by the American cowboy and developed into a rodeo competition. Cowboys and cowgirls would attempt to "out ride" each other for prize money by performing the most dangerous trick on galloping horses. During the mid-20th century, trick and fancy riding became too dangerous as a competition and evolved into a non-competitive demonstration of talent and showmanship.  

 

With our Introductory Course you are able to try trick riding and see if you would like to learn all aspects of trick riding after this.
