Qualifications required at different levels
Beginners can be of any age, so please do not let that stop you from trying vaulting. You do not need any prior riding, dance, or gymnastics experience either! We offer the Drop-In vaulting class for those that would like to see if vauling is for them without the commitment.
Time: Every Sunday (Rain or Shine) from 11:00am-12:00pm
Cost: $25.00 per vaulter
Sign Ups: Please sign up in the Garrod Farm office before the class begins (Maximum of 10 vaulters/class)
We offer a recreational trot class for those that have tried a few Drop-In classes and know that they would like to learn more. Recreational classes are a month long commitment and they are divided into "sessions". One session is 4 weeks long and the vaulters have the opportunity to participate in a local competition if the coach believes they are ready.
Time: Mondays, 4:30pm-6:30pm
Cost: $140.00 per session (4 weeks in a session)
Sign Up: PLease sign up in the Garrof Farm office before the first practice of the month (Maximum of 7 vaulters/session)
Tiny Tot vaulters are those that have participated multiple times in the Drop-In class and are between the ages of 3 and 8. This group requires a 1 day a week commitment and the Drop-In instructor will let vaulter know when they are ready to move to this class.
The Trot Team is for vaulters who have demonstrated commitment and a real desire to improve their current trot skills that they have developed in either the Recreational Trot class or the Drop-In class. The Trot Team is very team oriented and requires more challenging components like the "team freestyle." This is where up to 3 vaulters can be on the horse at one time performing a choreographed routine to music. Coaches will make the decision to move a vaulter up to Trot when they are ready.
The Canter Teams are divided into 3 group - C-Team, B-Team, and A-Team. Trot vaulters who show advanced skills and are ready to move up will join the C-Team. This team allows vaulters to get a feel for what the quicker gate, the canter, is like. The B-Team is for intermediate canter vaulters who have much better awareness of body control and strength for performing more difficult moves. The A-Team vaulters are those who have really dedicated themselves to the sport of vaulting and show advanced skills at the canter. These vaulters usually have been in the sport for a number of years, and have worked their way up the levels.
