Open to riders of all levels, Sandra will conduct an individual unmounted physiotherapy assessment in the concert room which will be followed with a mounted group session. The mounted session will be in collaboration with trainer Lorraine Laframboise and will interface the body-work session with specific riding skill applications.

Being a rider and having worked with all levels of equestrians including the Alberta High Performance Rider Program with Lorraine Laframboise, Sandra is presenting her theories and findings in a lecture with demonstrations at the Equine Canada yearly National Conference the 24th-25th of January here in Ottawa.
