About the experience

Trick riding on a horse is an exciting and impressive feat that you don't get to see every day. Horse vaulting and riding tricks are sports that are both competitive and entertaining in the equestrian world. The good news is that you don't need to already know how to ride a horse to learn these tricks. In fact, the moves on horseback are first learned on a vaulted barrel, which is similar to a gymnastics apparatus that is firmly on the ground. To perform these tricks, you will use a Cossack saddle, which allows you to hold positions on the side or even underneath the horse. Originally used by Cossack soldiers, this type of saddle is now a popular show riding skill that is particularly renowned at rodeos in the USA. It is also often seen in horse riding stunt sequences in films. Once you have learned some of the basics of the vault barrel, it's time to try them on a moving horse. At this point, you will also need a lunger, who is the person in the middle of the ring. The lunger directs the horse with a lunge line, so you can focus solely on your tricks. Think of the lunger as an equestrian remote control. All the horses used for these trick riding sessions are used to being vaulted and provide a steady and sturdy back for you to perform your tricks on. As you gain confidence, you can try some of the basic moves used in trick riding competitions. These could include things like mounts, dismounts, basic seat, arabesques, planks, wings, and stands.
