New Horse Sport Gains In Popularity

One of the country’s fastest growing equestrian sports is gaining in popularity in Cambridge. Vaulting – gymnastics on horseback – has already prompted two well-attended training courses at the College of West Anglia’s Milton campus.

A dozen people, some as young as 9-years-old, have completed each of the six-week courses. And they have been able to use Herbie, an experienced vaulting horse, who has been loaned to the campus by Julie Newell, a British team coach. The newly-named Cambridge Campus Vaulters holds sessions on a Monday evening from 6 to 7.30pm at a cost of £12 for each session during the six-week programme.
