Equestrian vaulting, described as gymnastics and dance on horses, has very little presence in the United States. The presentation will elaborate on what equestrian vaulting is and how it came to be throughout history from Roman riders to present day vaulters. While equestrian vaulting is in the US, it is not widely heard of and that is a misfortune. There are many physical and mental benefits to the sport, and despite what many individuals may believe, it is very safe. With that said, more individuals should rise up to the challenge and immerse themselves into this astounding sport to raise awareness and participation.
