Welcome to the Acorn Vaulter's Niche in CyberSpace

Vaulting is the sport of gymnastics on horseback. It was started in early Rome as a method of teaching horesmanship to the military. It then branched off into many forms still seem today. Some of these are bull vaulting, gymnastics vaulting, and horse vaulting. The sport is very large in Europe, but is still small in the US.

The Acorn Vaulters have been a member of the American Vaulting Association since 1992 and are coached by Susan Caskey. The team is working hard to expand vaulting to the East Mountian area outside of Albuquerque, NM, but at this time is fairly small.
