Equestrian Vaulting, Kids Camps, Western Riding and Horsemanship

As a Coach, Counselor & Educator for over 20+ years, I'm committed to promoting and sharing educational environments for Horses & Humans.

On the ground. Through horsemanship and a horse-handling practices that promote:

  • Compassionfor yourself, others, collective environment
  • Confidence  – the ability to experience success AND the resiliency to navigate failure 
  • Connection  to discern your vast feeling state, enhance emotional/social intelligence AND create/sustain meaningful relationships 

Humans who spend time learning from Horses, experience an Equine Guided Education.  

Such learning can powerfully shape our young people, through holistic experiences in awareness, sensory stimulation, executive functioning acquisition and age/stage appropriate  coaching and supports.

Equine Vaulting Programs

Welcome to the sport of Equestrian Vaulting. If you’re curious about what Vaulting is check out EVA BC’s website  – HERE 

This is the Equine Vaulting Association of BC’s website. It’s the best place to explore what happening in the vaulting world and find answers to questions you may have about this sport.

As a certified and insured therapeutic, recreational and competitive Vaulting coach for over 15+ years – This is what I’ve discovered over 20+ years in the Equine Industry;

Vaulting is the very BEST way to introduce equine enthusiasts (of any age & ability) to the art AND sport of riding horses.

 

All vaulting sessions include:

  • Horse care & barn chores (grooming, cleaning)
  • Warm-up on gym mats, practice skills on vaulting barrels (dynamic and static movement sequences)
  • Horse turns – practicing new skills up on the horse. 

 

Vaulters cycle through 2-4 turns on the horse over a 90 minuet small group (4-7) session. 

Private sessions are 75 min length and address any number of issues or skills the individual is seeking support with. 

Vaulting teaches riders to:

  • Find a genuine connection to center (and move from there)
  • Find balance at walk, trot, canter
  • Move freely and with creativity and thought, atop their horses body
  • Dismount from numerous physical positions (learn how to fall properly) 
  • Uplevel their confidence 
  • Ride with no stirrups or reins (like bareback, but with handles and a pad) 
  • Connect with their horses gaits and movement 
  • Develop or enhance a sense of feel and rhythm
  • Embrace the unexpected
  • Ride as a team, community, collective
