We are now offering individual horse, barrel and Movie (moving barrel) classes at the barn. In addition we have on-line barrel, stretching and fitness classes via Zoom.
ABOUT WOODSIDE VAULTERS
Woodside Vaulters, founded in 1990, is one of the largest and most successful vaulting clubs in the United States. The club emphasizes horsemanship, safety, team-building, communication skills, fitness, and relationship between vaulter and horse.
Our mission is to provide a safe environment where each vaulter has the best opportunity to reach his/her individual goals, for vaulting and for life.
Equestrian vaulting combines elements of gymnastics and dance performed to music on a moving horse. The horse moves in a circle on a longe line and is controlled by a longeur. Vaulters begin on stationary barrels and progress to performing on the horse at the walk and trot. Experienced vaulters perform at the canter.
SUMMER CAMP 2021
Join us for a week of fun at our horse barn learning the basics of artistic gymnastics, conditioning, vaulting on the stationary barrel, as well as on horseback!
We also offer an introductory vaulting program for children new to the sport of vaulting. Our Introductory Tiny Tots classes are for children aged 4 to 6, and our Introductory Trot classes engage children age 6 and older. No prior riding or gymnastics experience is required.

Woodside Vaulters is a 501(c) non-profit organization. As such, we rely on contributions from the community in order to provide the highest quality programs for our vaulters and maintain the highest standards of care for our horses.

Is Vaulting Safe?
We work to provide a safe vaulting experience for all of our vaulters. According to the American Vaulting Association (AVA)
"Vaulting is not only the safest of the equestrian sports, it is documented safer than riding bicycles, playing on playground equipment, and even playing soccer."
