Program Format

Ready Set Vault includes a theoretical component, based on an activity-filled handbook that helps your child to learn whilst also having fun. This handbook is provided as part of the online registration, which costs $65.

In addition, children complete practical lessons at your chosen Riding Centre, under the supervision of a qualified coach. The cost for the practical component will depend upon the individual Riding Centre.

Students will learn about each of these areas from a qualified coach. These skills will be developed safely on the ground before being transitioned onto a vaulting horse (prop), and then finally onto horseback.

Please note that due to the small number of vaulting coaches available, Ready Set Vault is only available at a limited number of Riding Centres.

Commitment to Safety

We are committed to providing a safe environment during the course of each child’s participation within the Ready Set Vault program. Whether participating in mounted or unmounted activities, children are monitored and taught the essentials of staying safe around horses. Coaches delivering Ready Set Vault require appropriate coach accreditation and are responsible for ensuring their insurance is maintained and up-to-date. We recommend parents follow up with their Ready Set Vault coach to confirm they have their current coaching requirements.
