A Natural Progression

Some time in the distant past

before we knew about vaulting

GrandPoppy forgets that he really does not like horses, for just this wonderful minute

The Student - May 2002

Lois Dennison of Stearns Street, a Carlisle School sixth grader, joined her fellow members of the New England Valkyries Vaulting Team in performing a demonstration at the Norfolk County Agricultural Fair in Walpole. Vaulting is the sport of gymnastics on a moving horse. The team's coach, Rachel Webber, and their horse, Devon, have their home base at Apple Valley Farm in Harvard, Massachusetts
