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 love all the valuable information that this site has provided for me. It is great!!
Just purchased an Equestrian Coach online membership. After seeing Bernie at Equidays 2014, New Zealand, I was very impressed with his methods and training approach and techniques. I can happily say that this is one of the best training tools money can buy - having my dad and his trusty video to help improve, I now have a variety of olympic and top coaches to guide me on my journey! Thank you for providing such an awesome service!!! 🙂
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.
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!
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!
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!
I have just joined EquestrianCoach.com. These videos are really an outstanding resource. Kudos to all.
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 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."
What a great job you have done, I especially like the part where you include another rider along with you on the video topics you do. Chock full of info, many require multiple reviews to let it all sink in. Outstanding opportunity for horsemen when classical instruction opportunities are few and far between.
Your website is a great resource, I refer to it almost daily. Also I think it is beyond awesome that you are making yourself available for questions from regular folks, amazing!
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 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!
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 love that a site like EquestrianCoach exists. When you're on a layoff from riding due to various reasons, (school, family priorities, monetary issues, injury etc.) I still feel connected to my passion/lifestyle and feel like I'm always learning something.
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 am absolutely loving the web site. I love your teaching and communication style! Thank you for doing this! Friend request sent to, btw.
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.
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!
