Vaulters sessions will include barrel training exercises,  strength and flexibility training (yoga, acro or similar disciplines),  artistic development, scoring, gymnastics-style cross training, sports  psychology, freestyle creation, and lots of fun for vaulters to meet  each other!  All levels are welcome!! Vaulters will be placed in groups  based on experience and age. It is expected that all vaulters will have  some opportunities to vault on horses in the lunger sessions, depending  on total number of registrants and horse availability; with actual on  horse time quite limited, and most time either in observation of  techniques of horse vaulting, and then with practice on barrels

Coaches training includes lesson planning, drills that help and are  fun, and many other tips and tricks, for all levels of coaches - those  teaching beginning vaulters through those with who are interested in  coaching up to the national championship and international levels.

Lunger training includes hands on training for all lungers of ALL levels (from brand  new to experienced who want to "touch up" their skills) with horses  provided by the Symposium!! A specific focus on the physical and mental  development of the horse will be stressed, and will include information  and tips on this most important element including discussion of  cross-training exercises and options, with demonstrations and  possibility for some hands on work. Sessions will also include "Through  the eyes of the judge" sessions on how the judge is scoring the horse.   There will be horses available for all lungers to practice lungeing,  provided by Mile High Vaulters. You may also bring a horse, on a space  available basis (see below).

For Lungers - Bringing a horse: Lungers/horse  owners may register to bring a horse! Limited stalls available @ $50 per  night. Day fee for haul-ins is $15 (tied to trailer). The owned horse  sessions are for lunger training, and vaulter participation will be  decided based on clinician/lunger/horse owner decision for the benefit  of horse and lunger.

Parent Sessions will be included at no cost to parent/guardians who have at least one vaulter registered in the symposium.
