Apex Vaulters is a competitive and recreational equestrian vaulting club located on the eastside of Seattle, WA. We offer group, private, and semi-private lessons to vaulters ages 8+.
About Equestrian Vaulting: Equestrian vaulting is a sport that combines dance and gymnastics on the back of a moving horse. Vaulters of all ages perform routines that are choreographed to music while the horse is either walking, trotting, or cantering in a circle. The horse is controlled by a longeur. The horse wears a surcingle with handles and a cloth-covered foam pad. Before vaulters try moves on the horse, they practice on a vaulting barrel which replicates the shape of the horse but does not move.
