Equestrian Vaulting: NY Times Article

Email Subscription

A few days ago, I came across Tammy La Gorce’s article about how equestrian vaulting–“gymnastics on horseback”–is gaining popularity in areas across New York. The article follows one particularly determined performer named Miranda Marcantuno, 11, who has been riding since she was six.

I thought the multimedia slide show was fun to look through to see the young riders practicing stunts on cantering horses that you might expect from circus performers. You can read the article here.

Also, check out the American Vaulting Association for more details about the sport.

    It’s such an awe inspiring sport and I’m happy to help spread the word about it. I think the NY Times article was really well-done and such a cool story.
