Paul Cronin Testimonial
“Bernie Traurig is an exceptionally talented and successful National/International rider and trainer who shares with us his system of riding and schooling horses. These high quality video presentations are brimming with straightforward instruction, excellent demonstrations, and insightful comments. They are a valuable resource for teachers, serious riders, and for a range of Educational Equestrian Programs.
Based on the American Forward Riding System, EquestrianCoach.com is currently the most important contribution to college equine-education curricula in this 21st century. With his focus being toward a quality performance over jumps as the main objective in his flatwork schooling, Traurig shows us, step by step, the modern schooling of the horse to improve movement, balance, and agility. His riders illustrate correct position, based upon the stirrup, and effective aids on the flat, as well as over fences.
Throughout, we see the rider’s controls applied and demonstrated in a technique appropriate to the level of schooling being demonstrated. Riders from Novice to Advanced will find this complete system of Riding and Schooling invaluable.”

Your site is pretty ingenious! I was just browsing through it and it legitimately makes so much sense in terms of the current era we're living in. One that is very much based on web based interactions. Congrats on the innovative mindset you seem too embody! Keep it up.
I have just joined EquestrianCoach.com. These videos are really an outstanding resource. Kudos to all.
I love the whole concept of EquestrianCoach.com!! I especially love all the great gymnastic/grid work ideas. My horse loves gymnastics and I am always looking for new and interesting challenges for us. Because I usually have to meet my trainer at shows, I love that there is a site available to turn to which gives me "homework" to work on between shows or lessons with my trainer. Thank you for such a wonderful site!
Equestrian Coach is an invaluable resource for both amateurs and professionals. Bernie has taken his brilliantly simple common sense horsemanship and conveys it in a way that can be useful to riders and instructors of all levels. His knowledge combined with the insight from some of the leading riders and trainers today has provided me with a trustworthy source to which I can refer for any question that I may have, as well as for my continuing education.
What I like best about EquestrianCoach.com: Short educational videos PACKED with useful information. Easy to navigate site. Variety of coach input. Keeps my lesson plans fresh while building on the basics.
Love all the videos and tips! Such a plethora of materials to keep things fun and interesting while improving horse and rider skills! Absolutely love it!
Equestriancoach is one of the most informative sites and best values, that I have ever come across. I love the choices of presenters, and the up close and personal interviews and training tips. As a trainer in Alaska, one can feel somewhat disconnected.... that is until you can bring Bernie Traurig, George Morris, Laura Kraut, Denny Emmerson, Julie Winkle into your living room via the computer screen. I LOVE this site! Thank you for your work to make it happen, and to continue its growth!!!
Thank you EquestrianCoach for your video segment on "How to land on the correct lead". We did this yesterday with my daughters pony and they nailed it 100% of the time. I never learned it this way and was so excited to continue my education. Your video segments are the best. Thanks again.
Thank you for your website and wonderful teachings, I have learned so much and improved several aspects of my riding with your videos. Specifically, I have improved my timing to fences, controlling the elasticity of my horse's gait and have started to implement automatic releases.
Having previously had the honor of doing clinics with Bernie, I am so excited to have all of his knowledge at my fingertips. Every time I ride with him I become a better rider. He always puts the horse's well-being first, so i know that whatever he is teaching me is of maximum benefit to my horse and I as a team. There is no better deal than to sign up for this site. I logged in last night and have already watched 5 videos! I cant wait to practice with my new baby horse. Thanks so much Bernie!
I love your site! It is loaded with excellent practical advice applicable to both beginner and novice riders. Myself and my horses thank you.
I was sooooo excited to see that there was an online option for the USHJA Trainer Certification Program through EquestrianCoach! That made all the difference for me. Kudos to you guys and to the USHJA for getting together and offering this option!
I love Bernie Traurig's videos on EquestrianCoach, it is like having him home for private clinics even though we are hundred of miles away ... I live in Québec, Canada ... Wonderful training tool!
EquestrianCoach.com is genius. Thank you Bernie Traurig, everyone at EquestrianCoach and the gracious trainers who guest coach, sharing the secrets of true horsemanship with us all. To be a true Equestrian requires a continuing dedication to education. Who better to learn from then the most talented and inspiring professionals of our time. I want to express my gratitude for this thoughtfully produced rider reference. The wealth of knowledge provided is a tremendous contribution to our entire sport. I have no doubt the lasting impression your site will have on countless generations of horseman. This website is, in my opinion, the biggest, most admirable contribution to the world of sport horses we have ever seen. Words fail. Thank you all!! 🙂
What I love about Equestrian Coach is that your videos give me exercises I can use at home that are safe for both horse and rider and benefit me in the show ring... Thank you!
I'm pleased to see that someone has finally done an instructional video on safely adjusting stirrups/girth when mounted. Seeing riders do it the wrong way has always been a pet peeve of mine.
I love this site because it helps me have new teaching techniques that I can pass on to my students!! Its so great having new ideas that are well explained by Equestrian Coach!! This site ROCKS!! 🙂
It is exciting to see a rider of Bernie Traurig’s caliber and knowledge providing the global equestrian world with a “user friendly” internet based system for schooling the horse and rider. This site with its high quality video segments and rational progression for the development of both horse and rider is a powerful resource for all equestrians regardless of level or discipline. Additionally, Equestrian Coach.com brings in outside experts to supplement Bernie’s fundamental training philosophy with current trends or new approaches to resolving problems. Hence, the site is not a static source of information but a very dynamic source of information which will grow with time as additional information is identified and added.
