USEA Instructors' Certification Program (ICP)
Capable instructors are essential to the training of riders and their horses for humane, safe and skilled participation in the sport of eventing. The USEA Instructors' Certification Program (ICP) seeks to help event instructors at all levels acquire a knowledge base, both theoretical and practical, upon which they can continue to build throughout their teaching lifetime. For USEA certified instructors, this knowledge base will support not only the teaching of event riding and training, but also care of the horse and development of effective and safe teaching method.
- Identify essential training principles for riders and horses, drawn from time-tested sources and from experience with today's competition challenges;
- Offer to instructors materials, workshops, and mentorship opportunities that present these training principles in a logical sequence;
- Certify instructors at a specific level of teaching proficiency, with the invitation to continue to learn and to achieve a higher level of certification if they so desire;
- Provide an atmosphere of professional openness and support to all instructors so that on-going learning is facilitated.
