Warm Beach Horse Camps have offered vaulting as a part of the camp experience for almost twenty years. Vaulting promotes balance, confidence and a oneness with the horse. Many students have taken vaulting lessons as a means of improving their riding skills. Others find it a challenging and unique sport in itself.
The sport of vaulting combines dance and gymnastics performed on the back of a moving horse. Rooted in horsemanship training of ancient Greece, Vaulting is very popular in Europe and is even the national youth sport of Germany. Over the last three decades, through the efforts of the American Vaulting Association and others, Vaulting has increased in popularity in the US.
The Vaulting Program provides weekly lessons, opportunities for exhibition performances, and a chance for selection on to the competition team. Warm Beach Vaulters promote teamwork, personal responsibility, and caring for others in Jesus’ name alongside the development of the physical talents of the sport. Our goal is to help every vaulter experience success while keeping the path clear to the cross!
