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.
