Vaulting at Little Brook Farm
summer camps in addition to traditional and
therapeutic riding instruction. Vaulting
lessons are taught by silver medal vaulter,
Elisabeth Spoto, and her mother, Dianne
Spoto. Occasionally, students have the Little
Brook Farm offers vaulting lessons and
instruction by World Equestrian Games
winner, Devon Maitozo, when he comes to
practice on our vaulting horse, Devlan.
In their lessons, students learn to stretch
properly and warm-up, and spend a great
deal of time practicing their skills on the
"barrel." After they learn to properly execute
the moves on the barrel, students then begin
to practice their skills on one of our lovely
vaulting horses. Students that have a serious
interest in vaulting may then take their skills
to competitions. Many of our vaulters perform
at fund raising events and horse shows at
