Come Watch Equestrian Vaulting at the Ranch this Weekend
Colorado Peaks Vaulting Team[/caption]One of my 'horsey' friends let me know about this amazingly athletic competition and show right here in northern Colorado this Saturday and Sunday. If Mom loves her horse, she'll be over the moon for this event.
The Region IV Mayfest Equestrian Vaulting Competitions are great fun for the whole family featuring all ages and levels of vaulters and horses in all kinds of configurations working to music.This particular event is a selection trial for the World Equestrian Games 2014 USA team. That means we'll see some of the top vaulters from around the country hoping to compete for World Championships in France later this year.
Although well known in Europe and other parts of the world, few people in the USA have even heard of vaulting. In addition to watching the competition, spectators will have the opportunity to visit with the vaulters and coaches, see the equipment used, as well as wander through the barns to meet the horses.
All of the clubs participating are not for profit. There is free admission and free parking
