Are you considering becoming an ICP Certified Instructor but have not been able to attend the required ICP Workshops because you can’t take time away from your farm? Then why not host an ICP Workshop?
By hosting an ICP Workshop, you will be able to attend without incurring the travel, hotel, and meal expense and won’t have to take time away from your business.
Workshops may be conducted with as few as four candidate instructors over two days or eight candidate instructors over three days. Additionally, there is an ICP Workshop Subsidy to help cover the red ink.

Like most professionals, I tend to do gridwork for most of the winter, before transitioning to coursework through the competition season. I find this exercise to be a good middle ground exercise as you have a little bit of a gymnastic combined with two easy bending exercises to set you up well for doing courses.
In 1993, Stephen Bradley had something to prove. It was the year after the Barcelona Olympic Games where Bradley had two unexpected refusals at the water complex. “It was very disappointing and a huge learning curve for me,” said Bradley. Little did he know, his path to redemption would result in winning the Burghley Horse Trials CCI4* (now CCI5*-L) – a victory so great that only two Americans have achieved: Bruce Davidson Sr. in 1974 and Bradley in 1993.
