There is a lot of interaction between the participants and the faculty during each session.

USPC participating instructors will be chosen based upon their active instruction at the Club, Regional and National level. Space is limited to 6 participating instructors whose fee to participate is a scholarship through the Eleanor Brennan Fund. Travel and housing will be the participants responsibility.

The USDF Instructor/Trainer Program is designed to educate dressage riders at all levels.
