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 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 have just joined EquestrianCoach.com. These videos are really an outstanding resource. Kudos to all.
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.
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!
I just watched two videos and feel like I have already gotten much more than my monies' worth. The Denny Emerson video about jumping ahead of the horse was the most useful instruction I have heard in a long time. Bernie's video on hands was great as well. I am very pleased to have purchased a membership. Thanks for creating this educational tool. For those of us with a limited income and/or in an isolated rural community it is a life line!
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!
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.
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.
I can't say enough about how helpful equestriancoach.com is to me. Every time I face a little issue working a horse I find great pointers from the huge selection of training videos. It's fantastic to have access to the knowledge of these world class horsemen. It's so addicting I watch a topic almost every evening.
My husband and I have been H/J trainers in the industry for many years. We have enjoyed the many coaching videos for a few months, and our students are benefiting greatly from our use of so many wonderful exercises we have taken from Equestrian Coach.com! We feel confident that whatever the situation in question, we can turn to Equestrian Coach for the answers and the help we may need. Thank you for this amazing tool!
You just cannot imagine how excited I am about this revolutionary teaching aid! My daughter got the American Hunter/Jumper Forward Riding System DVD's for Christmas and we have been watching those. It is just so incredible to get all of this fabulous information from these horsemen! I truly appreciate the classic horsemanship and riding instruction that is being shared through Equestrian Coach! Being able to utilize the videos to help continue teaching her things that I have forgotten and never learned is truly an answer to prayer! We have young horses that we are bringing along and all of this information is so helpful for that as well.
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 can't tell you enough how nice it is to have Equestriancoach.com as a tool for fresh ideas. Your system is exactly in line with mine, so it is so helpful and supportive. I watch it with my riders regularly, and then often school the same exercise just after viewing. I even purchased an annual membership for my 80 year old mother. She loves your site and is still riding and learning! Thanks again, Bernie!
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 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!
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!
