Sandra assists riders in her clinic as well as at stables and show grounds and has travelled to the US to provide support during competition..
Sandra is also currently involved in a research project with the University of Western Ontario to identify the prevalence and risk factors for lower back and hip pain in hunter/jumper riders. Her expertise in equestrian rehabilitation has been utilized to develop and initiate this project.
Sandra’s goal is to provide tools for performance enhancement. Through clinics, lectures and private physiotherapy sessions she strives to promote the concept that “Riders Are Athletes Too!”
