The USEA is excited to share this roundtable discussion from Coach Tony Sandoval and Coach Sando Training!
In this video, Coach Sando is joined by Dr. Jenni Douglas from Event Fit Rider Performance, Natasha Gunston from The Eventing Physiologist, and Lisa Bauman from Om Riding for a conversation moderated by Nicole Brown of the Equiratings Eventing Podcast and USEA Official Podcast for a discussion on the topic of low back pain in riders.
After each of the panelists introduces themselves and shares a bit about their background, the panel dives into answering questions submitted by viewers on the topic of low back pain. The panel covers a discussion of the reasons why riders get into pain, what actions they can take to make them more robust, and other topics that could help keep riders pain-free.

Over 15 years ago, Coach Tony Sandoval aka "Coach Sando" started his career as a Division 1 collegiate strength and conditioning coach. In 2016, he had the opportunity to rehab a severely injured rider. Working side by side with her, she returned to competition months before her doctors expected. It was that experience that gave Sandoval new passion and inspiration to focus on solely training equestrian athletes. Since then he has immersed himself in the equestrian world - he loves to spend time watching his riders during lessons and in competition to better understand the rider as an athlete. He even rides himself!
It was the first Annual Meeting of Members that brought the USEA to life in 1959. Now, 61 years later, the sport of eventing has endured a year unlike any other, and the USEA strongly encourages every member to participate in this year’s Virtual Annual Meeting.
The USEA Foundation is thankful to you, our donors, for your generous support over the years.
