The Koot-Neigh horse vaulting team had a great showing at NewFest in Spokane earlier this month.

The young athletes performed vaulting routines as individuals at walk, trot and canter, as well as canter pairs. Not only did the team do very well, but they also enjoyed their first road trip of the season.

Vaulting is gymnastics and dance with horses.

Koot-Neigh’s next performance will be local . Come watch them and other demonstrations at Kaslo May Days on Saturday, May 18.
