Welcome to the world of Vaulting

There are people who love riding horses, and there are people who love gymnastics. Joanne Eccles has taken both to a new level.

The dentist, from Kinross, is a vaulting world champion.

"Vaulting is basically gymnastics on a real, cantering horse," she explains. "Whatever you can think of to do in gymnastics - forward rolls, handstands, cartwheels - we're trying to do that on a moving horse."

Take a look at our Equestrian pages for more horse-related activity ideas. For Acrobatic inspiration, see our gymnastics activity guide.
