Vaulting is often described as gymnastics on horseback. The Boise Pony Club offers vaulting to all of its members (as well as the members of the surrounding Pony Clubs during the winter. (Feb. through Mar.)
BPC provides the vaulting horses and instruction and fun! Everyone starts out on a horse which only walks. This allows them to learn the “tricks” such as Fly Kick, Scissors, Kneeling, Standing and the ever popular Dead Man’s Hang.
As their skill level progresses, they move onto the main vaulting horse and perform those “tricks” at a trot. Our vaulting team culminates their training by performing at the Idaho Horse Expo in April.
