    Equestrian Vaulting - World Equestrian Games 2010

    Equestrian vaulting is best described as gymnastics and dancing on horseback. It is an entertaining and exciting sport. Vaulting is particularly popular in countries like Germany and France, but it's gaining a lot of followers in other parts of the world, like Brazil Australia or the United States.

    In competitive equestrian vaulting athletes compete by themselves or in teams of two or more. Both the vaulters and the horse are judged according to their performances and receive scores from 0 to 10. Beginners perform their routine during the horse's walk, while experienced vaulters perform on the horse at a canter. Horses used for vaulting are trained especially for this kind of events, and they are controlled by a lunger who keeps them moving in 15-meter circles.

    The components of a vaulting exercise include a mount and dismount, as well as various maneuvers like kneeling, standing, handstands, flips, and tossing teammates into the air. While the vaulting horse is not saddled, it does wear a surcingle fitted with special handles that help vaulters.
