Equest Therapeutic Horsemanship - Therapeutic Vaulting

Therapeutic Vaulting

Equest is excited to offer Therapeutic Interactive Vaulting. This is a small group class activity where riders learn to independently execute gymnastic and dance exercises on a moving horse. The horse is controlled by the instructor on a lunge line while each rider takes turns executing the movements. The other riders will act as spotters and provide encouragement and support from the ground.

Each lesson begins with the riders working together to prepare the horse for class. They may warm up and/or learn new exercises on a vaulting barrel before trying the skill on the horse. Socially, vaulting promotes teamwork and cooperation among the riders. Physically, vaulting develops core muscle strength, balance and coordination. Emotionally, vaulting develops confidence and self-esteem.

Equest Therapeutic VaultingGenerally, current riders who are interested in learning a new skill participate in vaulting, but this activity is available to any rider who is able to ride independently at the walk and trot. New riders will visit Equest for an initial evaluation and they are encouraged to develop goals.
