U.S. Vaulting Team

“For gymnastics enthusiasts, Vaulting is a sister sport, but on the back of a horse. All Vaulting routines—team, individual, and freestyle—are performed on the back of a cantering horse, traveling in a circle and attached to a lunge line. Competitors are judged on their ability to smoothly execute compulsory movements demonstrating strength, flexibility, and balance during their routines. The horses are an important part of the team and, like the human gymnasts, are also judged on their performance. Vaulting at WEG features Men's, Women's, Pas de Deux and Team competitions.” - Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI)

The U.S. Vaulting Team has won a total of nine medals at the FEI World Equestrian Games, including a Squad gold medal in 2010 (Lexington, Kentucky USA) and two Individual gold medals, one in 1998 (Rome Italy) and one in 2006 (Aachen, Germany).
