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.”

What I like best about EquestrianCoach is... you offer hope for improvement, a guarantee of and fun, and access to incredible knowledge!
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.
Equestrian Coach provides me with guidance, encouragement and inspiration with my riding and showing. I really like the variety of professionals and wide range of topics and videos available to view. I am the lone amateur hunter rider at an all discipline barn which can be challenging at times. I plan my own self taught lessons, daily exercises and set my own courses. My "very" part time trainer is available on an as needed basis and when we meet at shows. I thoroughly enjoy your site and greatly appreciate the services offered by Bernie and all the professionals. I look forward to using Equestrian Coach in the future.
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!
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 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 am absolutely loving the web site. I love your teaching and communication style! Thank you for doing this! Friend request sent to, btw.
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'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.
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 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!
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.
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!!!
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!
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.
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.
Just want to thank Equestrian Coach as I moved to CA back in Sept. and due to reestablishing my business have been unable to be in training. Equestrian Coach has given me tons of tips and exercises to work on that makes me feel that I have still been moving forward with my riding this year. Thank you!!
I cannot tell you how much I learned from and enjoyed the videos on TMJ. They were so thorough, so informative..I can't wait to check my horse's sensitivity. So well done!
