A team called Lazy River Vaulters
One of the special things at Lazy River Pony is our involvement with horse vaulting and the American Vaulting Association. Aside from the traditional English saddle, we use a safer surcingle contraption. In Europe, vaulting is taught before horse back riding. Interested students can learn vaulting techniques both on the moving horse and a vaulting barrel. Vaulting is actually safer than horseback riding and gymnastics it is an excellent way to improve your athletic ability, confidence and flexibility. Also teaches you how to fall without hurting yourself.
Vaulting and horseback riding are activities that increase strength and flexibility, improve coordination and balance, nurtures self esteem, challenge the imagination, improve rhythm and timing, enhance the respect for nature, and conditions children for other sports. Vaulting is gymnastics and dance on the back of a moving horse. Don’t miss the chance to participate in a very unique sport.
