Local Competition In Borgloh

The vaulting team from Borgloh, in the north-west of Germany, near Osnabrück, is inviting all vaulters to their competition on April 23. & 24, 2016. It will take place in the indoor arena of the riding & driving club RuF Borgloh.

They offer competitions for teams & individuals in the German classes M* & M** (level middle, because there are so many M squads they are devided in 1 stars & 2 stars), L (easy) & A (beginners). They will show their compulsories & freestyles in canter. For the smaller vaulters there will be competitions in walk. This is the class called E because Germany had the A, B, C, D system before & the E stayed for walk groups. Or it means newcomer (Einsteiger). I am not sure about its history.

Squads who are able to do their comps in canter can compete in the so called “canter-walk-teams” where the freestyle is shown in walk. In Germany it is common that the vaulting horses only have to be five years old. With a new horse there is the possibility to take part in the “vaulting-horse-competition” where only the horse & the lunger get scores. The horse will be lunged on both hands, then the vaulters run next to it, show some compulsories & some freestyle exercises. The horse get the chance to be in the competition arena with all the scary people & flowers & mirrors & noises without going for perfect scores of the vaulters.
