Kadriya has been working with horses for over 20 years, starting in Moscow, Russia, where she learned vaulting even before riding. This is a common practice in many European countries that she is trying to incorporate into the club and any riders that she works with. Upon moving to Arizona in 2016, she found no vaulting clubs in the state and eventually decided that this needed to change. She started Salt River Vaulting Club in 2019 and the club became a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2020. Kadriya also became PATH Intl. certified in January of 2020 and specializes in coaching children and adults with special needs. Her passion is teaching beginners and children with special needs about vaulting, riding, and horsemanship in general. Outside of coaching vaulting and riding, she trains horses.
Having been involved with horses since 2007, Jarred has over 10 years of riding under his belt. Jarred started in the hunter/jumper before moving to Arizona in 2010. Upon arriving in Arizona, he wanted to take horses to the next level and was set on becoming a vet technician. After taking multiple classes at Scottsdale Community College equine program, he decided that he would keep horses as his hobby and not pursue a career in horses. Jarred has been vaulting since 2018, which started when he went on a trip to Russia where he was thrust into learning vaulting after only his first few hours of being in the country. He has been involved with the club since its inception and continues to actively participate to this day.

She ended her competitive career in 2017 and worked as a recreational gymnastics coach for kids ages 2-12 and levels 1-3. Jocelyn started working with horses in high school and eventually decided that she wanted them to be a part of her future career. She is currently a student at Scottsdale Community College majoring in equine science.
