Koot-Neigh is back from a successful equestrian vaulting provincial championship in Langley. Seven vaulters were supported by their two coaches, two horses, and families on the trip, as well as Nelson families and business who helped raise over $1,500 to cover equipment and travel costs for the competition. Vaulters competed with their horse and lunger in both compulsories and freestyle.

Some also competed in barrel classes, either in pairs or individually, or on the horse in pairs. The team did very well over all, bringing home four golds, three silvers, two bronzes, and an array of ribbons. They also received three awards: Zone 1 Champion, BC Reserve Champion and Best Walk Horse.
