A popular program for youth will once again be offered by the Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding Society.

A popular program for youth will once again be offered by the Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding Society.

Starting April 11, this six-week program will offer weekly sessions for vaulters of all abilities aged six and older.

What is vaulting?

According to Vault BC, “Vaulting is the performance of gymnastic and dance-like movements to music on a moving horse.  Vaulters begin working in walk and progress, with training from a qualified instructor, to be able to perform more complex movements at trot and canter. Vaulters learn to have the agility and athleticism of gymnasts, the grace and expression of dancers and the balance and feel of equestrians.”

For details, visit www.vaultcanada.org/EVA.

No prior experience is required and participants will progress at their own pace. Vaulting is a fun way for children to develop skills in teamwork, make new friends and it’s an affordable way to become involved with horses.

Rebecca  Martens, a certified vaulting instructor with the Equestrian Vaulting Association of BC will head the 90-minute sessions at  4839 Headquarters Rd.

Times are: 3:15 to 4:30 for ages six to nine and 4:30 to 6 for those 10 and older. There will not be a class on Good Friday, April 18.

To register, call CVTRS at 250-338-1968. For more information, e-mail coaching@rebeccamartens.ca.
