Vaulting is a fun physical activity which is great for balance and fitness.

Gymnastics on Horseback

Equestrian vaulting is often described as gymnastics on horseback.  The horse is controlled by a lunger and in a 15-metre circle, while the vaulter performs exercises on the horse’s back using specialist equipment. Vaulting is a fantastic physical activity that helps with concentration and focus as well as balance and control.

Vaulting training sessions combine skills such as dance and gymnastics to help to develop confidence, balance and harmony with the horse. Being part of a vaulting group is a lot of fun!

Feedback from parents proves the benefits of vaulting to be many and participation in the sport can commence from as young as 6 and go on into the 20s. All our horses have a maximum weight carrying limit.  Currently we have a weight restriction for vaulting of up to 9 and a half stone.

Vaulting is on Saturdays at the Cavalier Centre and is charged at £18 (per 1 hour sessions) for ad hoc bookings and £16.00 when booking blocks of 6

'Favourite moment? - every time a rider gets 'something' no matter what - to see it click is the best feeling.'


‘I love all the horses at the Cavalier Centre but my stand out favourite is Freddie as he is the one that I ride and have a really good bond with, he is a gentle giant.’
