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.
This page contains information about, and downloads for, National, Provincial, and FEI rules plus the Guidelines for both barrel competitions and other unrecognized classes that may be offered in Canadian competitions. Also included are links to the FEI Guidelines and Code of Points.
The first Junior World Championships are planned for 2015. In the future, it is anticipated that the Senior World Championships will be held every even numbered year and the Junior World Championships will be held every uneven year.
Per the FEI website, the anticipated location is Ermelo, NED. Dates to be in early August. Events offered should include: Junior Squads Junior Pas de Deux Junior Individual Male and Female
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.
