Equestrian vaulting combines elements of gymnastics and dance performed to music on a moving horse. The horse moves in a circle on a longe line and is controlled by a longeur. Vaulters begin on stationary barrels and progress to performing on the horse at the walk and trot; experienced vaulters perform at the canter. The club emphasizes horsemanship, safety, team-building, communication skills, fitness, and relationship between vaulter and horse. Woodside Vaulters, founded in 1990, is one of the largest and most successful vaulting clubs in the United States.
