(KSL News) Some gymnasts work out on pommel horses, but a few gymnasts in Utah prefer the real thing. Several young women with the Oak Hills Vaulters do their tricks on real horses.

"Basically, vaulting, the definition is gymnastics and dance on horseback, so that's literally what we're doing," head coach Kylynn James said.

The horse's gait ranges from a walk to a canter, and one to several gymnasts can perform at one time. They're getting ready for their annual Winter Spectacular, which is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 13, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Salem.
