BBC Sport - Get Inspired: Welcome to the world of Vaulting

Welcome to the world of Vaulting

There are people who love riding horses, and there are people who love gymnastics. Joanne Eccles has taken both to a new level.

The dentist, from Kinross, is a vaulting world champion.

"Vaulting is basically gymnastics on a real, cantering horse," she explains. "Whatever you can think of to do in gymnastics - forward rolls, handstands, cartwheels - we're trying to do that on a moving horse."

Take a look at our Equestrian pages for more horse-related activity ideas. For Acrobatic inspiration, see our gymnastics activity guide.
