Founded in 2002, the USEA Instructors’ Certification Program provides a standard of instruction unlike any other eventing program in the U.S. Any eventer can become ICP certified and will join a group of well-known eventers including gold medal Olympians like David O’Connor, Leslie Law, and Phillip Dutton - who are all ICP certified.
The ICP program 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. The mission of the USEA Instructors’ Certification Program is to produce and improve the craft and art in the teaching of riding and horse management for the sport of eventing through the application of the highest principles of horsemanship, which ensures the ethical and humane treatment of horses and the safety of both horses and riders and extends to all those associated with the health and well-being of the horses.
