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.”

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.
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.
I love this website. It has become what I watch instead of TV!
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!
What I like best about EquestrianCoach is... you offer hope for improvement, a guarantee of and fun, and access to incredible knowledge!
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...
I love your site! It is loaded with excellent practical advice applicable to both beginner and novice riders. Myself and my horses thank you.
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!!! 🙂
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 really enjoy the information given on Equestrian Coach, as well as the quality and ease of use for all the videos. This means a lot to me owning a video production company! I put into practice much of the exercises with my horse and have found them so beneficial!
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 have just joined EquestrianCoach.com. These videos are really an outstanding resource. Kudos to all.
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 just wanted to let you know how much EquestrianCoach has meant to me. I'm a 48 year old mom who started riding 5 years ago. I did the hunters for a while, but being blessed with a lovely and versatile horse, as well some masterful instructors, I've been fortunate enough to make it to the high ch/adult jumpers at "AA" shows. So often I have had silly questions that I don't want to ask, because I've obviously missed some fact along the way. Your videos are the perfect solution. I've watched almost all of them at least once. I just watched the second part of walking the course from WEF last winter, and I was pleased at how much of it I knew and/or understood. I often watch things one frame at a time, especially if a horse if jumping through a series of jumps, in order to see exactly what you are pointing out. For me it has been the perfect supplement to my regular lessons and has brought a much sharper focus to my flat work practice. I'm sure the videos take a lot of time, and the contributions of many, to produce, but the result is outstanding. Thank you so much!
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!
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!!!
This website is such a wonderful tool. I watch a new one every morning and practice. It has helped me not get so frustrated with myself and realize once I am stronger and more balanced, EVERY part of my ride is better for my horse and me! So, Thanks!!!
I love this website! I just started a monthly membership and have learned so much from the videos its amazing!!!! I have shared it with everyone and anyone because its really a nice set up, you have done an amazing job. Thanks for all your hard work!
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.
The quality of instruction on EquestrianCoach is just superb. What an amazing resource!!! And MUCH needed, to be sure. I’m back in the saddle after a 20 year hiatus, and as a Pony Clubber who grew up admiring The Great Riders, and Coaches, of decades past, have been less than impressed by the current general level of knowledge and apparent dwindling understanding of Horsemanship overall. A wonderful site for any level of rider who wants to learn correctly. I wish you all continued success!
