Qualifications for Vaulting Stewards in Canada
Equestrian Canada stewards (minimum Recorded 2 - elegible for Silver and Bronze competitions) who are interested in adding vaulting to their credentials may apply to VaultCanada for certification as a vaulting steward.
A prospective vaulting steward must shadow at a minimum of one Equestrian Canada recognized bronze-silver-gold vaulting competition under the supervision of a certified VaultCanada vaulting steward.
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.
Thank you to Bretta DeLuca for putting together this excellent overview of what to expect at a vaulting competition!
Vaulting is the performance of gymnastic and dance-like movements to music on a moving horse.
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
Congratulations to all competitors and to our new Canadian National Champions!

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.
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.
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.
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 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 .
The Horse Council of British Columbia has announced the equestrian athletes selected to compete at the BC Summer Games. Vaulting made its first appearance at the BC Summer Games in 2010 and in only 4 years it is now the equestrian sport with the largest number of qualified athletes. The record number of 14 vaulters that qualified will each represent the zones in which they reside
The VaultCanada Sport Committee has established this selection process in order to determine representatives for Canada at the World Vaulting Championships and/or the World Equestrian Games. Specifically, the selection process set out below will ensure a fair method of selecting the National Team using objective criteria.
The FEI has announced the 2018 WEG qualifying criteria for the period of January 1, 2017 to the yet to be determined cut off date in 2018.

Although our vision includes having a Provincial Vaulting Organization in every province and territory in Canada, this is not yet the case. If you are interested in vaulting and you live in a province that does not yet have such an organization, we would love to hear from you. Please email us at [email protected] and let us know of your interest, to what extent you think you might be able to be involved, and/or if you know of anyone who could help by being involved in your area. We look forward to hearing from you :)
