Vaulting, or equestrian vaulting, is often described as gymnastics or dancing on horseback, individually or with a team. It can be done as a demonstration, as part of entertainment events and shows, or competitively. It is an international sport governed by the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) and by the American Vaulting Association (AVA) in the United States.  It is also used as a therapeutic activity for children and adults who need help with balance, focus, gross motor skills, and/or social deficits. Clubs can be found throughout the United States, and the best teams can work their way up to competing at the highest levels, such as the World Equestrian Games.
