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.

First, Payne joins us to talk about what took place during the YEH Symposium. This year, much of the focus for the judges in attendance was on the slight change to the jumping scoring system taking place in 2019. Now, each fence will be judges on a 0-5 point scale versus the 0-3 point scale in place last year. She also discussed the evolution of the Young Event Horse Program over the last 10 years and how the scoring system has been refined over time. She stressed that the YEH committee is always open to feedback and aims to keep constant communication with the members of the YEH community.

Next, Maxime shares his general impressions of the Educational Symposium as a whole, which he had not attended in the past. He discusses specific examples from his two days of teaching during the ICP Symposium – dressage on day one and show jumping on day two.

Grid Pro Quo with Alyssa Peterson

From the time we begin jumping, we are always working on perfecting the canter. Throughout my career I’ve been lucky to train with a variety of top professionals and each had their tried and true method for developing the right canter to jump a clear round. The best instructors have their own methods for helping their students recognize this “perfect” canter.
