Vaulting

Vaulting is defined as "Gymnastics on the moving horse" and the National Equestrian Centre is the local centre for vaulting in the A.C.T. Vaulting combines many skills with performances choreographed to music. Flexibility, strength, coordination, team work and horsemanship are all important skills developed through vaulting. It is a great opportunity to gain the connection and advantages of working with a horse while not requiring a vaulter to own their own horse.

Kerrabee played host to the 2014 NSW State Vaulting Championsips which were held over the weekend 9-10 August. The championships were well attended, with vaulters from all over NSW.
