Vaulting on horseback originated as a teaching exercise used by the Romans.  It is now a standalone sport - although also a good training exercise for any rider.  

The horse is equipped with a vaulting surcingle with two handles at the side for the vaulter to hold and a further ring at the top for exercises such as kneeling or standing on the horse's back.  Competitions are a team event, with eight team members each performing six exercises, separately.  Three riders may perform on the same horse together at advanced level.
