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.

Started in 2002, the USEA Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) educates all levels of eventing instructors to confirm their knowledge base, both theoretical and practical, upon which they will continue to build throughout their teaching lifetime. Instructors are essential to the training of riders and their horses for humane, safe, and skilled participation in the sport of eventing.

Please contact Nancy Knight at [email protected] or (703) 669-9997 for information on how you can host an ICP Workshop.
