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.
Thank you EquestrianCoach for your video segment on “How to land on the correct lead”. We did this yesterday with my daughters pony and they nailed it 100% of the time. I never learned it this way and was so excited to continue my education. Your video segments are the best. Thanks again.
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’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 like best about EquestrianCoach.com: Short educational videos PACKED with useful information. Easy to navigate site. Variety of coach input. Keeps my lesson plans fresh while building on the basics.
I absolutely love this site for so many reasons, and as an instructor living in an extremely rural area of the Pacific Northwest, it is my lifeline to the outside world! I have a group of riders of varying levels that take dressage lessons from me each week, and it’s great to get a fresh perspective on the exercises we work on.
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!
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 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.
What a terrific site… It’s like being able to enroll in the “Jumper University” of my dreams…
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!
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!
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.
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 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!
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!
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.
Thank you for your website and wonderful teachings, I have learned so much and improved several aspects of my riding with your videos. Specifically, I have improved my timing to fences, controlling the elasticity of my horse’s gait and have started to implement automatic releases.
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 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
