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.”

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!
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
EquestrianCoach.com is great for us in Chile so far away from top clinic instructors.
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 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 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.
"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."
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 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!
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.
What a terrific site... It's like being able to enroll in the "Jumper University" of my dreams...
I was sooooo excited to see that there was an online option for the USHJA Trainer Certification Program through EquestrianCoach! That made all the difference for me. Kudos to you guys and to the USHJA for getting together and offering this option!
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!!!!!
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.
I love all the valuable information that this site has provided for me. It is great!!
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.
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!
