For more than 2,000 years, people have been performing equestrian vaulting or dance-like movements on or over the backs of moving
horses. Some people trace the origins of vaulting to the ancient Roman games where acrobats would demonstrate their skills on cantering horses. Others trace the history of vaulting to ancient Crete where bull-leaping was prevalent!
Whatever its roots, modern vaulting is fun and exciting. This year, Fleur de Lis Vaulters from Kentucky will perform in the Dixon Oval during the breaks on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Don’t miss it!
