Vaulting is another way to increase your balance and confidence.Sometimes we sit a client on the horse using the vaulting pad and roller. This allows the person to feel the horses back and also to feel very safe at the canter.
This picture shows a young girl being helped to stand with an experienced vaulter sitting on the neck supporting her.
Children who start their equine experience vaulting will go on to have a very good seat and position, totally independent of the reins. It prepares them for all different disciplines.
Adults can have fun sessions which we call aerobics on horseback - better than going to the gym. Better in groups of at least 4. There is no expectation of having to leap on in canter. Leg ups are allowed !!
