The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Vaulting


Once you have completed the Horse Tricks hobby and built the vaulting arena (read my guide to the stables post for more information) an adult sim will be able to use a 2 star horse to begin this hobby.

Send an adult sim to the stables, click on the horse and select:

  • Vaulting- 5 hours

After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the ribbon collectibles. Every time your sim does the vaulting hobby your vaulting hobby skill level up percentage will increase, once you reach 100% you will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the ribbon collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

The table below shows the level up percentage:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL Vaulting
1-2 50%
2-3 40%
3-4 30%
4-5 25%
5-6 20%

For example you would need to do horse tricks 2 times to reach level 2 from level 1

The next table shows you for each level what ribbon collectibles you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

1 Horse Crasher Handstanding and Super Side Hanger are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Flailing Jelly Legs Flag Flyer and King of the Mill are now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 Single Second Poser Scissor Rider and Kick Stander are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Stable Statue Flank and Swing Off are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 Poised Horse Master Horse Surfer and High Hoof are now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 Horseback Gymnast One Hand Fluke and The Saddleless Sally are now unlocked in the hobby collection.

You can now complete the collection!


NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby!

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?


The completed horse vaulting collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

You will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

The rewards for completing this collection are 3 star horses and 3LP:

You will now also be able to use the 3 star horses to complete this hobby quicker!

  • From the second time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 3LP

  1. Hi when I try to buy a horse for vaulting it says I need to complete to tricks first. I have people on level 1 tricks how far do they need to get or is it about ribbons? Thanks!

  2. Will all potential collectibles remain unlocked for future attempts to complete Tricks even if I move the same Sim over to Vaulting? I’m trying to decide if it is worth keeping one Sim at Level 6 on each horse hobby or okay to move them on. I only had the one Sim working on Tricks so if they change hobbies I won’t have anyone there on L6 if Horse Tricks factors into a timed hobby event in the future.

    In other words, does the game remember you’ve previously reached L6 and/or completed the hobby for future timed events, even if there is no one on L6 when the timed event starts. So far, I’ve been keeping at least one L6 on cooking, fashions, fitness, etc. since they come up repeatedly (or useful for points like cooking is). Is it worth it to do so, or does it not actually matter?

    • If you previously reached level 6 with a sim and then you change their hobby the game will remember you reached level 6 so you don’t need to keep a sim on each hobby.

  3. Thanks, that is good to know. I feel better moving some more sims to cooking for LP or live hobby events like fashion or fitness, knowing that.

  4. Can multiple sims do this hobby at the same time, assuming there are 2 two star horses available? Can the vaulting ring hold two at the same time? Thanks
