The USEA Instructors' Certification Program (ICP) seeks to help event instructors at all levels acquire a knowledge base, both theoretical and practical, upon which they can continue to build throughout their teaching lifetime. For USEA certified instructors, this knowledge base will support not only the teaching of event riding and training, but also care of the horse and development of effective and safe teaching method. Capable instructors are essential to the training of riders and their horses for humane, safe and skilled participation in the sport of eventing.
