Definition: Horse

Horse: Formerly, the official gymnastics vault apparatus for vaulting for both men and women. It was long and narrow and women vaulted over it sideways and men vaulted over it the long way. It is no longer used for vaulting and has been replaced by the new vaulting apparatus – the vault table. The term currently only refers to the pommel horse for men.
