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 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!!! 🙂
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!!!
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!
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!
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 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 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.
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 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!
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!
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.
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.
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 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!
What I love about Equestrian Coach is that your videos give me exercises I can use at home that are safe for both horse and rider and benefit me in the show ring... Thank you!
I love this website. It has become what I watch instead of TV!
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.
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 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!
