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.
The EVA of BC is a registered not-for-profit society, with the mandate to support and grow the sport of equestrian vaulting (or “vaulting” for short) in British Columbia through education and actively supporting the development of coaches, clubs and vaulters. The EVA of BC operates under its Constitution and By-Laws .
In Canada, we have Provincial and National Judges. Provincial Judges can judge provincial events as well as Equestrian Canada divisions up to and including Canter B. National Judges can judge Provincial events and all Equestrian Canada divisions.
Thank you to Bretta DeLuca for putting together this excellent overview of what to expect at a vaulting competition!
The Alberta Equestrian Vaulting Association was created as a non-profit society in 2004 with three founding member clubs; fifteen years of growth later, there are seven vaulting clubs in Alberta, all of which are active and competitive. Read more about our Association, our High Point Program and the Indon Award.
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.
The Terms of Reference is the governing document that describes how this Equine Canada Discipline committee is structured and conducts its business.
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.
Congratulations to all competitors and to our new Canadian National Champions!
