The Valley View Vaulters is the largest vaulting club in the nation and the only one with a combination of disabled and non-disabled vaulters competing together, co-founder Virginia Hawthorne said.

"We started in 1980 with seven vaulters," Hawthorne said."One-third were handicapped, and we had no horses.Now we have eight excellent horses."
The sport of vaulting combines the skills of gymnastics with horseback riding.The Valley View Vaulters help people with disabilities challenge themselves mentally and physically by competing on the backs of horses, Hawthorne said.
"My husband, Rick, only has one arm.He lost his left arm to cancer when he was 10," Hawthorne said, "Its hard for someone to say they can't do this because he can do it.He's an inspiration."
After a three-year hiatus, the fundraiser is returning this year with an enticing assortment of entertainment, Hawthorne said.
Hawthorne said she expects the border collies with Frisbees to be a big hit.She also mentioned face painting and baked goods as crowd favorites.
Throughout the day there also will be a silent auction, drill teams on horses, and an appearance by McGruff, the crime dog.Morgan St. James, author of a book about the Valley View Vaulters, also will be on hand, Hawthorne said.St. James' book, "Miracles Happen on Horseback," chronicles Rick and Virginia Hawthorne's work in the Valley View Vaulters.
