This is Priscilla Faulkner with Falconwood Vaulters. A vaulting barrel is probably a vaulting teams most important piece of equipment. It is our fake horse, it's the thing, it's the piece of equipment that protects our horse from injury and from just endless boredom as children practice their routines over and over. Most vaulting barrels are made out of one and a third large oil drums that are welded together with some type of legs put on them. There are directions on the Internet for how to make barrels and probably every team in the country covers their barrel differently, but usually they're padded in some way and then have some sort of covering put on them. Some people weld handles on and some people attach. Their vaultings are single to the barrel, to use. This is Priscilla Faulkner with Falconwood Vaulters.
