Representing Cloverdale/Surrey (Zone 3) Hailey Down took home her second gold medal in the equestrian vaulting competition on July 19.
 
“I wasn’t nervous today, I was just excited,” Down said with a smile.

After scoring well in the compulsory competition earlier this morning and performing a beautiful freestyle routine later on, it is clear to many that Down has a talent.

Although she has only been vaulting for three years, she competed in gymnastics previously. Down had never ridden a horse before, but soon fell in love with vaulting when she was introduced to the sport.

“Running and weight training helped me build my strength for vaulting,” she said when asked how she prepared for this weekend’s competition.
 
Down looks forward to tomorrow’s competition and hopes to move up a level for her next vaulting show at the end of the summer.
