HFSHC Vaulting Club - Welcome!

Welcome to the HFVC! The Vaulting Club is an association committed to the promotion of Vaulting in HFSHC.

The most artistic and acrobatic of all FEI disciplines, it is a feast for the eyes and the result of remarkable teamwork and unity between a horse and a rider. The result of gruesome gymnastic training from the human vaulter and the constant reinforcement of a horse's good temperament, vaulting is VC-9489 impressive for many reasons; riders jumping mid-canter, balancing, performing a daring dismount to the horse's rear well within reach of powerful, hooved hind legs... Are vaulters possessed with a touch of madness? Definitely. But their horses are simply magnificent in their poise, attitude and trust, never breaking gait.
