    HorsesInHaiti, it is for the highest two levels (1*- silver and 2*- gold) vaulters, and we have some visitors from other countries competing on horses which are owned by US clubs. I know one of the men is from Denmark, and a woman is here from China, as well as a couple of Canadian teams who brought their own horses. I've been doing vaulting for about 3 years now, but am just at beginning canter. My coach and several of my former team-mates (I switched teams recently) are competing there.

    The Nationals include those two levels, two more canter levels, and one trot level, and most other competitions have an easier trot level as well, and walk classes for complete beginners, theraputic vaulters, and tiny tots (~2-6).

    Isn't it wild how small the world has become? My friend is in charge of all the volunteers and says that they are all working hard and having a ball.

    My2Cents, vaulting is "small" enough that almost everyone knows everyone else. I'm not sure about the top level competitions like this one, but at most, all of the competitors and their families chip in to volunteer a bit. Everyone really cheers each other on, and there's a lot of camaraderie, even at the higher levels. There just doesn't seem to be any of the politics or railbirding that some other disciplines are prone to.
