Best Gymnastics/ Equine Sport You've Never Heard Of (2005)


What, you thought vaulting was a gymnastics event? Well, hold your horses: It's an equine sport, too. Combining single-rider and team displays of acrobatic moves with horseback riding, the ancient sport of vaulting has an unusually strong hold on the state of Colorado, which is home to eight of the fewer than 100 clubs that promote this old-world sport nationwide. What's more, the 2005 National Vaulting Championships are scheduled for this August in Denver.
