The USEA Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) Committee is happy to announce the return of the USEA ICP Symposium, which will be held on February 8 - 9, 2022 at Barnstaple South in Ocala, Florida.
This year’s clinicians will include ICP Faculty members: Mary D’Arcy, Phyllis Dawson, Jim Graham, Eric Horgan, Dayna Lynd-Pugh, David and Karen O’Connor, Mark Phillips, Jerry Schurink, and Robin Walker. Additional speakers/presenters will be announced in the future.
The 2022 Symposium will follow the traditional symposium format of instruction of dressage, show jumping, and cross-country, at all levels. New this year will be the introduction of the nationwide standards for each competition level, basics of sports psychology, teaching to all learning modalities, and essential coaching knowledge.
This will be a continuing education clinic for already Certified Instructors. It is strongly recommended that all instructors attend this seminar.
This Symposium is also open to anyone who is not ICP Certified, as it will be a wonderful educational opportunity.
If you are interested in attending the ICP Symposium or would like to be a demo rider, please contact Nancy Knight at [email protected] or 703-669-9997.
About the USEA Instructors’ Certification Program
Instructors are essential to the training of riders and horses for safe and educated participation in the sport of eventing. The USEA Instructors’ Certification Program (ICP) was initiated in 2002 to educate all levels of eventing instructors with essential training principles upon which those instructors can continue to build throughout their teaching careers. ICP offers educational workshops and assessments by which both regular instructors, Level I through Level IV, Young Event Horse (YEH) instructors, and Young Event Horse professional horse trainers can become ICP certified. Additional information about ICP’s goals, benefits, workshops, and assessments as well as names and contact information for current ICP-certified instructors, YEH instructors, and YEH professional horse trainers are available is available on the USEA website.
