The United States Eventing Association (USEA) Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP), Young Event Horse (YEH) Program, and Future Event Horse (YEH) Program are joining forces yet again to bring the ultimate educational opportunity this winter. The 2020 USEA Educational Symposium will be at Barnstaple South in Ocala, Florida on February 17-20, 2020.
Seven members of the ICP Faculty met September 23-24 at Phyllis Dawson's beautiful Windchase in Purcellville, Virginia, for co-teaching and continuing education. Faculty members took turns teaching and instructing demo riders/horses in cross-country riding lessons. In an evening session, they talked about risk management and SafeSport as it relates to instructors and how new frangible technology is changing the way horses are trained.
The USEA Instructors' Certification Program (ICP) was formed in 2002 to help instructors equip their students with the essential techniques needed in eventing to be safe and successful. Our prolific ICP faculty (made up of Captain Mark Phillips, David O’Connor, Karen O’Connor, Phyllis Dawson, Mary D’Arcy, Jerry Schurink, Jim Graham, Robyn Walker, Eric Horgan, and Dayna Lynd-Pugh) has cultivated these techniques in the instructors while keeping them on the forefront of the ever-changing sport of eventing.
Robin Walker, Mary D'Arcy, Phyllis Dawson, and Brian Sabo led the USEA Instructors' Certification Program Open Forum at the 2018 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention. The open forum covered several topics, including the importance of remaining current with the curriculum, how Modified has closed the gap between Training and Preliminary, SafeSport, overcoaching, changes to the Eventing 18 program in 2020, and the new YEH Instructor and Professional Trainer certifications.

This week on the USEA Podcast, Marilyn Payne and Maxime Livio come on the show to discuss the Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) and Young Event Horse (YEH) Program Symposia that took place last month at the Grand Oaks Resort in Weirsdale, Florida.
With a morning of show jumping and an afternoon of cross-country from Training to Intermediate – there was plenty of action and education on the Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) jump day. Every single group was started with a line – whether poles or cross-country jumps.
“Tick tack, tick tack, this is the music of the trot.” Horses danced to music in the sandbox as they learned new methods of dressage training and movements from top French eventer, Maxime Livio. Livio brought a French twist to Florida for the first day of the USEA Instructors' Certification Program (ICP) Educational Symposium. Hosted at The Grand Oaks Resort, attendees sat under the shade with the backdrop of vibrant green grass, palm trees, and horse drawn carriages, all while listening to Livio share his expertise on dressage.
Seven clinicians, six levels, five components to a five-star horse, four days long, three USEA programs, two weeks until it starts, and one Frenchman – don’t miss out on the biggest educational event of the year: the 2019 USEA Educational Symposium on February 18-21 at the Grand Oaks Resort in Weirsdale, Florida.
