The USEA Eventing Coaches Program (ECP), formerly known as the USEA Instructors' Certification Program (ICP), educates all levels of eventing coaches to confirm their knowledge base, both theoretical and practical, upon which they will continue to build throughout their teaching lifetime.

Cindy Burge Memorial ECP Grant

The Cindy Burge Memorial ECP Grant, offered each year by each USEA Area’s Adult Rider Program to one (or more) of its area’s instructors who meet the grant’s qualification standards and is selected as a recipient. These qualification standards include merit as an instructor, service to the sport, potential to provide future benefit to the sport, and demonstration of compatibility with the educational goals of ECP and intention to be assessed for ECP certification. 

The grant honors Cindy Burge, a spirited leader of eventing in the Northwest and one of the first instructors to be certified by ECP. With her instructing and competing and her organization of the Deep Creek Horse Trials outside of Spokane, Washington, Cindy benefited eventers every day with her knowledge and experience, her riding ability, and her organizational talent and hard work.
