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.”

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!!
What I like best about EquestrianCoach.com is that it gives me a bunch of new ideas of things to work on at home. Tons of exercises for both horse and rider!
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.
I am loving the videos on Equestrian Coach. I think I've watched 10 in the last 24 hours... I encourage everyone to watch the piece on 'The American Hunter/Jumper Forward Riding System', so interesting and educational. Thanks Bernie, well done!
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 the how Equestriancoach builds upon the basics, always explained and demonstrated clearly. Also love the old videos and pictures! Keep up the excellent work!!!!!
My horse Cocoa and I love about EquestrianCoach.com! Especially that I can go to any video posted on the site about any concerns I have , and get many ideas on exercises. I love the site all the way around but enjoy the videos the most since they are beyond helpful to us. 🙂 Cocoa agrees. Thank you EquestrianCoach!!
I am so excited about my subscription to your website. Spent at least an hour on it the first night. I am a real fan of the effort. Thank you again!
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!
I love all the valuable information that this site has provided for me. It is great!!
I love your site! It is loaded with excellent practical advice applicable to both beginner and novice riders. Myself and my horses thank you.
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.
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!
I think it´s very important to see the pros to learn, the work that Bernie has done in Equestriancoach.com is amazing, here, in Spain there are no projects like these, I felt very happy when I found these website.
This awesome site helps me improve my riding and keeps me up to date with everything that is going on in the equestrian world! Greatly appreciate it!
I am very pleased that the USHJA is partnering with Bernie Traurig’s Equestrian Coach to provide the educational content online for the Trainer Certification Program. Whether you are just starting out as a professional or you have been teaching and training for decades, you can always learn something new. Equestrian Coach is not just for professionals, anyone at any level can benefit from the material offered on the site. I encourage you to get certified and to check out Equestrian Coach.com
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!
Equestriancoach.com is the BEST THING THAT HAS HAPPENED TO ME IN YEARS! It has reinforced my knowledge of the basics, and of course I have learned SO MUCH more!! The range of motion demonstration with Zazou Hoffman in part 4 of ‘Building Blocks of a Great Position’ was SO good for my students, it really got their attention! They seem to have a whole different attitude afterwards.
I cannot tell you how much I learned from and enjoyed the videos on TMJ. They were so thorough, so informative..I can't wait to check my horse's sensitivity. So well done!
