American Vaulters Declare Intent For World Equestrian Games Consideration

Applications from 24 individual vaulters have been filed with the USA Equestrian Vaulting Committee Liaison for consideration in the selection process for World Equestrian Games IV (WEG IV). WEG IV will be held September 10-22 in Jerez, Spain with the vaulting portion of the competition September 12-15.

The selection period for American vaulters will end June 9, 2002 and shortly following that the Vaulting Committee of USA Equestrian will name the three individual men, three individual females and one team eligible to enter the international event.

Consideration has been requested by four American Vaulting Teams. Eight vaulters and four alternates are named to each team. Only one of those teams will be named to represent the United States and earn the title "Team USA". The final vaulting contingent will consist of one team of eight vaulters, 6 individual vaulters, and the selected vaulting horses.

Riders, drivers, vaulters and horses representing the disciplines of Dressage, Driving, Endurance, Eventing, Reining, Show Jumping and Vaulting will make the journey to Spain. The next World Equestrian Games will not be held until 2006.

The American Vaulting Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization for the education and promotion of vaulting. Vaulting is the sport of gymnastics and dance performed on and in harmony with the equine partner. For more information about vaulting please visit our website at
