The gymnastic type positions are practiced on a stationary barrel before attempted on the moving horse to ensure the participant’s safety and horse’s well-being. The movements can be very simple such as sitting without holding onto the surcingle or more elaborate positions such as kneeling. Participants increase their skills at their own pace while still in a group lesson.

Individuals with or without cognitive, emotional and physical disabilities can benefit from Interactive Vaulting. Participants must be able to move independently without assistive devices due to the nature of the activities.
