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!
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!
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 am so excited about my subscription to your website. Spent at least an hour on it the first night. I am a real fan of the effort. Thank you again!
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!
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 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'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.
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!!!!!
Thanks EQUESTIRANCOACH! I have watched almost all of your videos ... it has been great to keep my skills up when unable to ride! I especially appreciate the videos getting points across simply and with great demonstrations. Keep up the great work!
My favorite thing about EquestrianCoach, besides all of the news and great positive instruction available, is the old video footage of great horses and performances from the past. Then there are the video comparisons of different disciplines of riding....I think it is always great for people to see that good training & riding transcends the type of saddle you sit on. I could go on and on...
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 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 am so excited to have EquestrianCoach.com as an extension of my training program. What a wonderful tool for myself and my students. Well worth the wait!
I love getting a early morning dose of EquestrianCoach.com! Thanks Bernie Traurig and all the featured trainers/coaches and staff of EC. The lunge lesson with Val Renihan is going to be a great PE class for my daughter this year during our homeschooling!
I love your website, as a rider who can't afford the traditional form of coaching, equestrian coach allows me access to top coaches without breaking my bank account. A bonus to watching videos and "doing it yourself" is that is encourages critical thinking.
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!
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!!! 🙂
