Woodside horseback vaulters win national competition; now on to world championship

Original post made on Aug 8, 2014

Woodside happens to be the home of two internationally competitive athletic teams: the Woodside Vaulters and Pacific Coast Vaulting. Athletes from both teams were recently named national champions in their sport, in which gymnastics and dance moves are performed on the back of a cantering horse, and both are sending athletes to an international championship in France later this month.

Thanks for the article and the picture. My understanding is that the rest of the Woodside Vaulters club also did very well at the National Championship. What a great set of athletes (both horses and vaulters) to represent our community in an international competition. Good luck in France!
