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 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!
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!!!
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 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!
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.
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 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!
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!
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 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
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!
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 Bernie Traurig's videos on EquestrianCoach, it is like having him home for private clinics even though we are hundred of miles away ... I live in Québec, Canada ... Wonderful training tool!
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!
I am absolutely loving the web site. I love your teaching and communication style! Thank you for doing this! Friend request sent to, btw.
Your site is pretty ingenious! I was just browsing through it and it legitimately makes so much sense in terms of the current era we're living in. One that is very much based on web based interactions. Congrats on the innovative mindset you seem too embody! Keep it up.
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.
I love this website. It has become what I watch instead of TV!
