This national program was approved on 2012-03-19 by the VaultCanada Sport Committee. Levels 1 through 5 are administered and managed provincially, while levels 6 through 8 are administered and managed nationally.
The Provincial Vaulting Trainer Program has been established since 1995 and is recognized by Horse Council BC, the Alberta Equestrian Federation, and the Saskatchewan Horse Federation.
All clubs listed on this page are official and current member clubs of the EVABC and have at least one certified Trainer/Coach.
EVABC Memberships are part of the Horse Council BC Membership system. You can purchase your 2014 EVABC Membership at the same time as your HCBC membership or at a later date.
When you want to enter an event like a CVI or world championships, the requirements are quite different than what you would expect at regular Canadian vaulting competitions. You will be entering on behalf of your country so this involves both Equine Canada and the International Equestrian Federation.
The Equestrian Canada Rules for Vaulting in Canada state in Article L301 that: "The criteria for scoring is explained in detail in the FEI Guidelines for Vaulting Judges which is published annually on the FEI Vaulting Website." The notices posted here are supplemental to the FEI Guidelines for cases where the FEI Guidelines do not cover specifics needed in the context of the Canadian rules and/or competition systems.
The Saskatchewan Equestrian Vaulting Association (SEVA) is a non-profit corporation, founded in 2010 by a small group of interested vaulters and parents from the Living Skies Vaulting Club. The SEVA is recognized by the Saskatchewan Horse Federation (SHF) as the Provincial Vaulting Organization for the province.
SEVA membership is open to anyone interested in vaulting. Membership is mandatory for participation in SEVA events, such as clinics or competitions, as well as for events hosted by other provincial vaulting organizations.
It is widely known that helmets should not be used when vaulting, but less widely understood why. This page introduces the basics, while our Fall g-Force Calculator page goes into all the details, provides a tool to help assess the level of risk, and states the Risk Management Guidelines for Vaulting.
To meet the minimum annual updating requirements of this certification, trainers must submit proof of their attendance at approved courses/seminars/clinics. All instructional events organized by your provincial vaulting organization are automatically approved for upgrading, as are all such events organized by your provincial equestrian sport organization. All other educational events must be preapproved by the chair of your provincial vaulting organization's Education Committee.
Welcome to VaultCanada! Equestrian Vaulting is the FEI Discipline of gymnastics, acrobatics, and dance on the back of a moving horse.
This page provides a technical overview of how to calculate the force a vaulter experiences during a fall, including an introduction to g-force calculations with references and sources, an official test method that uses readily available tools, comparisons to other sports, and finally, recommendations specific to vaulting.
This is our current Terms of Service, last updated 2014-04-27.
The Alberta Equestrian Vaulting Association was created as a non-profit society in 2004 with three founding member clubs; fourteen years of growth later, there are seven vaulting clubs in Alberta, all of which are active and competitive.
