Join us for Summer Camp 2023 the weeks of June 19-23, July 10-14, and July 17-21. Kids ages 6 through 12 are welcome.  No vaulting experience necessary. Registration opens this January. We look forward to meeting you!

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.


Introduction to Vaulting:


Woodside Vaulters offers  introductory vaulting classes for children new to the sport of vaulting.  Our Tiny Tots classes are for children aged 4 to 6, and our Introductory Walk and Trot classes engage children age 6 and older.  No prior riding or gymnastics experience is required.

Is Vaulting Safe?


We work to provide a safe vaulting experience for all of our vaulters. According to the Equestrian Vaulting USA:

"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."
