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.”

EquestrianCoach.com is a great teaching tool as it allows me to WATCH, LISTEN, and LEARN about techniques new and old. It caters to each specific discipline and also shows you how they overlap. I am more focused on my rides because I have a plan based off of EquestrianCoach.com's wonderful videos, and my horse enjoys the new lessons they bring us in the ring. Thanks Bernie for sharing your great idea with the world!
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!
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 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 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 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 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!
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!!!
I just want to say, that Bernie's coaching videos are excellent. He breaks everything down into digestible segments that are visually easy to follow, without dumbing down the instruction. I would jump (no pun intended) at the chance to clinic with Bernie. Thanks for these videos.
I love Bernie Traurig's videos on EquestrianCoach, it is like having him home for private clinics even though we are hundred of miles away ... I live in Québec, Canada ... Wonderful training tool!
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.
Your site is pretty ingenious! I was just browsing through it and it legitimately makes so much sense in terms of the current era we're living in. One that is very much based on web based interactions. Congrats on the innovative mindset you seem too embody! Keep it up.
My OTTB is still green and I am a beginner! We mostly learn together and that makes our relationship amazing. I love EquestrianCoach because there are some many different videos that start with the basics, in which we are still learn up through advanced. They touch on every level of riding which helps everyone out.
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!!! 🙂
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!
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.
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.
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!
Having previously had the honor of doing clinics with Bernie, I am so excited to have all of his knowledge at my fingertips. Every time I ride with him I become a better rider. He always puts the horse's well-being first, so i know that whatever he is teaching me is of maximum benefit to my horse and I as a team. There is no better deal than to sign up for this site. I logged in last night and have already watched 5 videos! I cant wait to practice with my new baby horse. Thanks so much Bernie!
