Diamond Bar Vaulters
Equestrian Vaulting is a recreational and competitive sport that combines dance, gymnastics and harmony with the horse in a way that is both fun and challenging. The American Vaulting Association has member clubs all over the country and facilitates education and competition locally, nationally and internationally. Vaulting is a sport that can be enjoyed by all from ages 2-92. Performances can be individual, in pairs or by a team of 6 vaulters with 1, 2 or 3 people on the horse at the same time. The horse travels in a circle at the walk, trot or canter and is controlled by a lunger. In a club setting, vaulters share the care and use of one or more horses, enabling those who do not own a horse to participate. They learn confidence, teamwork and horsemanship while developing themselves into top athletes.
Vaulting can be used to start riders for any equestrian discipline by first developing their seat and balance on the horse without their having to control the horse at the same time. For this reason, it is a great addition to any equestrian program, and allows more people experience with the horse with a fewer number of horses in the program.
The Diamond Bar Country Vaulters will be performing at the Norco Equine Affair and can assist you in trying a few vaulting moves on the barrel yourself. They can also help you start your own vaulting program. Join in the fun as a spectator or participant.
