Equestrian vaulting From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Equestrian vaulting, or simply vaulting,[1] is most often described as gymnastics and dance on horseback, which can be practiced both competitively or non-competitively.[2] Vaulting has a history as an equestrian act at circuses,[3][4] but its origins stretch back at least two-thousand years. It is open to both men and women and is one of ten equestrian disciplines recognized by the International Federation for Equestrian Sports (Fédération Équestre Internationale or FEI).[5] Therapeutic or interactive vaulting is also used as an activity for children and adults who may have balance, attention, gross motor skill or social deficits. Vaulting's enthusiasts are concentrated in Europe and other parts of the Western world. It is well established in Germany and Switzerland and is growing in other western countries. Vaulting was first introduced in the United States in the 1950s and 60s but was limited only to California and other areas of the west coast.[6] More recently, it is beginning to gain popularity in the United States northeast.[7] (for more reading see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equestrian_vaulting)
