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!
Very few stallions compete at the top level in eventing - let alone at the Olympics. Windfall did just that, winning a team bronze medal under Darren Chiacchia for the USA in Athens in 2004. The fact that Windfall now has not one, but two, sons due themselves to compete for the same country as their sire, the USA, in Tokyo really does make him one in a million.
It's the moment we've all been waiting for, and it's almost here. The eventers are set to take the stage at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics THIS week, and we're here to help you catch all of the action. Have you been wondering how and when you will be able to watch each phase of the event? You've got questions, and we've got answers!
