Vaulting

Have you ever wondered what it feels like to be in such harmony with a horse that you can stand in canter with the horse totally happy?

 

How about being able to jump on a horse softly in canter, or to jump down from canter without hurting yourself?

 

At Shieldbank you can learn to vault, which means you can learn to do gymnastics on the cantering horse. Together with Philip Beasley, 4 times Individual Male British Champion, you can go from grass roots right up to top national and international level.

 

We take children from 5 years upwards, and there is no upper age limit. It is not necessary to have any previous experience of riding or gymnastics as full training will be given.

 

Vaulting is statistically the safest equestrian discipline and is the best possible basis for learning to ride or improving your riding. So why not come and watch - or even give it a try!
