Riders can perform gymnastics on horseback! Group lessons are performed with the horse on a lunge line in a circle. Beginner vaulters learn with vaulting barrels to mount and perform ballet poses in a protected setting. The riders then learn how to jump to a walking horse with assistance (onto a surcingle or vaulting saddle) and then how to pose while the horse progresses to trot and canter. Truly amazing art when performances are set to music.
