Warm Beach Vaulters Shine in 2011’s First Competition

2011 Winter Warm UpFor about 80 Northwest vaulters, the Winter Warm Up Fest is a competition weekend of “firsts.”

  • First competition of the season
  • First time performing new routines
  • First time competing with new team members

All winter long, vaulters refine their compulsory move skills, experiment with new free-style routines, and stretch their limits of physical conditioning.  For some, this is their first competition ever and for others the first competition at a new level. The first competition of the Spring is a chance to see the fruits of a long winter of preparation.

Warm Beach Vaulters were blessed to win first place in all but two rounds of competition and there they won second place.  Vaulting is a team sport with every vaulter supported by parents, horses, lungers, coaches, and fellow vaulters.  Such a strong showing at the first competition of the season is a tribute to the dedication of each vaulter and the team of supporters that surround them.

Congratulations, Warm Beach Vaulters!

Warm Beach Vaulters comprise nearly half of any regional competition they attend.  Their positive influence, uplifting attitudes, and support to other clubs contribute mightily to the strength of the region.  Even more important than their accomplishments in the vaulting ring is the influence they have as God’s love shines through these amazing athletes, coaches, and staff.

The next competition is May 28-29 at Fallbrook Farms in Hillsboro Oregon and then Regionals June 18-19 at the Washington State Horse Park in Ellensberg, WA.  We hope to see you there!

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
