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.
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.
At this time, this program is only available in BC. The BC Ministry of Education has approved the application by the EVABC granting high school credits to vaulters who achieve significant milestones in their careers. The program provides opportunities for the following credits:
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.
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 .
All vaulters who are competing outside of Canada, at either an FEI event or a National event in that country, must use the online registration system in this website to register for foreign entries. If you have any question, please contact our Foreign Entries Secretary .
Every Vaulter, Lunger and Horse is required to have an FEI ID number.
Each year your FEI number needs to be renewed.
You can register or renew it here:
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.
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.

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.
Vaulting is the performance of gymnastic and dance-like movements to music on a moving horse.
Congratulations to all competitors and to our new Canadian National Champions!
