Transition To An All-Year-Sport Is Done

This week I was afraid that the vaulting season is over & we have to wait till spring for competitions. But it was ungrounded. The world cup is only eight days away. It will start all over again in Munich with six women, seven men & four pas-de-deux. And what makes it even better, thanks to ClipMyHorse.TV we are able to watch it live.

I am not an international vaulter & I can’t imagine to rush from a qualification season to the world equestrian games to the world cup. When do the athletes, coaches, lungers & assistants go to work or study? When will we finally do also the transition to a sponsored sport that the team of individual vaulter & at least trainer will be paid?

Maybe that’s one of the reasons why there are more male competitors at the world cup than females. Do they have different jobs or is just that attractive to be at the world cup?

    The World Cup really isn’t a fair representation of world talent. Without sponsorship it is impossible for countries outside Europe to afford to send vaulters, longeurs and horses to Europe to compete so many times. Sad, but it is a fact.
