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.”

“I sat down to watch one video, and an hour later I had watched about five,” said Steve McAllister of Martin McAllister Training about his introduction to EquestrianCoach.com. “Jenni and I told all our clients that they need to subscribe, and that first night of viewing videos I signed up for a year. Bernie supports what we teach, and I learned things that will help me coach my riders better and prepare my horses better.”
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!! 🙂
I love my horse and how she allows me to practice all the fabulous tips we learn on Equestrian Coach, she never fails to try her hardest!
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.
My favorite thing about the site is that any time I have a question or issue while schooling horses at work, I can find the answer from these videos! I am learning from the best, riders that I look up to and who’s footsteps I am following, and I would not have that opportunity without EquestrianCoach.com! We are never finished learning about horses, and this site (by having new videos and topics all the time) is never finished sharing their knowledge with us 🙂 Thank you!!
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!! 🙂
I have been showing in the Hunter/Jumper ring for 8 years and riding for 9. I currently ride show jumpers at the Grand Prix level thanks to Bernie’s system. I study between 1-3 videos on EquestrianCoach.com two nights a week. When I finish with a video, I watch it all over again and find that I learn something new after each viewing. The videos on Equestriancoach.com are easy to understand and I get to work at my own pace with each individual horse, from barley broke to Grand Prix level. I personally recommend Equestrian Coach to anyone who wants to become a better rider at any level. Thank you Bernie for sharing your incredible horse knowledge and riding system with me and all my barn friends.
What I like best about EquestrianCoach.com is the easy access to coaches, clinics, lessons, blogs and training articles that can be found on the site. A tremendous plus to those of us training on a budget that would not normally allow us the ability to clinic with some of these great trainers.
Every year I search for a new source to keep my teaching fresh and correct. I am using your site as my inspiration this summer, it gives me access to top horse people when I only have 15 minutes to spare. It is a huge help and asset! Thank you!
My favorite thing about EquestrianCoach is all the amazing videos and the amazing riders and trainers! These video topics are so helpful and useful to anyone who rides! Beginner to Grand Prix! They are easy to relate to and you will always find something to learn or something to fix! For example in this picture if your horse decides to ‘dolphin’ like this, then having good balance and position is needed and these videos show so many great ways to build on that!!! That is why I LOVE EquestrianCoach!
I love your site! It is loaded with excellent practical advice applicable to both beginner and novice riders. Myself and my horses thank you.
You have provided our world with an option for education that is not otherwise available – wrapped it up with modern technology and made it affordable. Tremendous that someone with your level of knowledge and connections took this on and continues to expand.
Equestrian Coach provides me with guidance, encouragement and inspiration with my riding and showing. I really like the variety of professionals and wide range of topics and videos available to view. I am the lone amateur hunter rider at an all discipline barn which can be challenging at times. I plan my own self taught lessons, daily exercises and set my own courses. My “very” part time trainer is available on an as needed basis and when we meet at shows. I thoroughly enjoy your site and greatly appreciate the services offered by Bernie and all the professionals. I look forward to using Equestrian Coach in the future.
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!
I work with a lot of green horses, and EquestrianCoach.com provides me with great training exercises and helpful information from professionals that I wouldn’t otherwise get a opportunity to learn from. THANK YOU Equestrian CoachES!
I wanted to contact you because I have gotten a tremendous benefit from the very short amount of time that I have been using EquestrianCoach.com… I am riding ten young horses a day for a breeder/dealer in Germany, and they have responded wonderfully to your flatwork system. It’s so simple and clear for them to understand, and I have seen immediate results and so has my boss. Equestriancoach.com is brilliant. Its amazing that I can basically learn your system while I am in another country. And its way better than a book. Thank you for creating it.
My mare may be 16 years old, but she doesn’t act like it. I love watching the instructional videos that helps us improve our game in the Stadium ring. We do 3-day eventing and I think one of our weaknesses is Stadium besides Dressage, where she just doesn’t think it’s all that fun. Love this site!!! 🙂
My favorite thing about EquestrianCoach, besides all of the news and great positive instruction available, is the old video footage of great horses and performances from the past. Then there are the video comparisons of different disciplines of riding….I think it is always great for people to see that good training & riding transcends the type of saddle you sit on. I could go on and on…
Thanks EQUESTIRANCOACH! I have watched almost all of your videos … it has been great to keep my skills up when unable to ride! I especially appreciate the videos getting points across simply and with great demonstrations. Keep up the great work!
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!
