The Westwind Vaulters kicked off their competition season at two major competitions this spring. Eleven of the Westwind Competitive Vaulters went to Chilliwack, B.C., the end of May, and competed in the Canada Cup International and Provincial Level Future Champions competition. It was the first time ever competing for 2 of our 3 horses and for 4 of our 11 vaulters. All our vaulters and horses represented our club very well:
In June we took 14 vaulters and 3 horses to the Provincial Spring Into Summer competition in Red Deer, Alberta. The competition was a huge success for our vaulters as well as our horses, with vaulters and horses both receiving top scores throughout the competition.
In only his second competition ever, our horse Fortissimo earned the second highest horse score for the weekend beating out many veteran vaulting horse with multiple years of competition experience.
Coaches Todd Griffiths and Kalyn Geisler are very proud of the hard work and dedication of the vaulters and grateful for all the support of the families, friends, and community members of our great club. Judges at both competitions commented on how impressed they were with the rapid progress and great potential of the Westwind Vaulters.
