Equestrian vaulting is most often described as choreographed acrobatics on horseback with its origins stretching as far back as two thousand years. These graceful and talented competitors compete in both compulsory and freestyle categories and have the option to compete as a Solo, Pas de Deux (Duo) or as a Team. With the average vaulting horse standing approximately 1.6m (from the ground to the base of their neck), it’s not a height you would want to fall from making it breathtaking, thrilling and an utterly graceful sport for spectators to watch. Equestrian Vaulting is a fairly unknown sport in South Africa but is widely popular in Europe and the USA. In South Africa, it is governed by VASA (Vaulting Association of South Africa) and is a discipline that falls under the SAEF (South African Equestrian Federation).
