Where Dance and Gymnastics Meet on Horseback
Head coach Jen Byvelds is a certified provincial vaulting instructor with Vault Canada.

Vaulting From the Ground Up
Students registering in our recreational vaulting program start in our walk levels.
Our recreational classes start with building skills on the ground.
Vaulting at a walk
Once students have built skills on the ground, they progress to our barrel horses and horse simulator.
Once ready, the class will move onto the real horse at a walk.
Progressing & Performing
Progression into faster levels consists of the completion of our club's assessment program. Students can be assessed by our coach at the end of each semester to complete their class skills in categories such as balance, strength, compulsories, and freestyle.
The Nation Valley Ranch Vaulters
Students who have finished their first semester will be eligible to join our competition program and squad classes. These are our cross training classes, where we work with instructors specializing in dance, gymnastics, acro yoga, aerials arts, and more!
Your vaulter will get to work with Coach Jen to choreograph their own routine for Vault Canada shows.
We are so proud of our Competitive program. Our vaulters have been extremely successful at competitions against vaulters from across Canada.
Our squads have also performed in front of grandstands at many local events.
Please Note: Vaulting does not run for the winter semester.
