This is Priscilla Faulkner with Falconwood Vaulters. To prevent injuries in vaulting, one of the first things to do is to make sure that the vaulters are wearing proper footwear. Another is to make sure that they're vaulting on appropriate footing. The footing needs to be soft and have some give since the vaulters are landing quite frequently from height and at speed. Another thing is for vaulters to practice their moves on the barrel numerous times before they practice the moves on the horse. Trying to keep these factors in mind will help prevent injury along with having a proper warm-up and properly toned muscles. It's Priscilla Faulkner with Falconwood Vaulters.
