Our Horses

We would not be able to do what we do without our special horses, they are loved, valued members of our club. Our horses train not only in vaulting but also cross train in English riding. Any breed of horse can be a vaulting horse but typically you'll see drafts, draft crosses and warmbloods ideal for the sport as they are big and strong and possess the calm disposition and steady gait required to be a vaulting horse.

Bumbles

Clydesdale

Bumbles is our only mare, she's as sweet as she looks and has a kind, gentle nature, perfect for her job as walk/trot horse for the youngest vaulters. If you scratch her neck you've made a friend for life. 

Rocky

Percheron/Quarter Horse Cross

Rocky is one of the newer members of the herd but it feels like he's been with us forever, he's taken so well to his new job, always eager to come out to ride and enjoys all the love and attention he gets from the vaulters everyday.

Jellybean

Mini 

Jellybean is a club favourite among all the kids, ok he's a favourite among the adults too - Just look at how cute he is! Mainly a companion to Rocky, Jellybean is a little gentleman, he's patient and calm which makes him perfect to teach little humans all about how to care for horses. He enjoys all the grooming and attention he gets from the littles...and the horse cookies too!
