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.”

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.
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 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 am absolutely loving the web site. I love your teaching and communication style! Thank you for doing this! Friend request sent to, btw.
My horse Cocoa and I love about EquestrianCoach.com! Especially that I can go to any video posted on the site about any concerns I have , and get many ideas on exercises. I love the site all the way around but enjoy the videos the most since they are beyond helpful to us. 🙂 Cocoa agrees. Thank you EquestrianCoach!!
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!
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!
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!
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 love this website. It has become what I watch instead of TV!
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 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!
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!
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.
What I like best about EquestrianCoach.com is that it gives me a bunch of new ideas of things to work on at home. Tons of exercises for both horse and rider!
I have just joined EquestrianCoach.com. These videos are really an outstanding resource. Kudos to all.
EquestrianCoach.com is great for us in Chile so far away from top clinic instructors.
This awesome site helps me improve my riding and keeps me up to date with everything that is going on in the equestrian world! Greatly appreciate it!
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.
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!!
