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 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!
EquestrianCoach.com is genius. Thank you Bernie Traurig, everyone at EquestrianCoach and the gracious trainers who guest coach, sharing the secrets of true horsemanship with us all. To be a true Equestrian requires a continuing dedication to education. Who better to learn from then the most talented and inspiring professionals of our time. I want to express my gratitude for this thoughtfully produced rider reference. The wealth of knowledge provided is a tremendous contribution to our entire sport. I have no doubt the lasting impression your site will have on countless generations of horseman. This website is, in my opinion, the biggest, most admirable contribution to the world of sport horses we have ever seen. Words fail. Thank you all!! 🙂
I think it´s very important to see the pros to learn, the work that Bernie has done in Equestriancoach.com is amazing, here, in Spain there are no projects like these, I felt very happy when I found these website.
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!
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!
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 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 love all the valuable information that this site has provided for me. It is great!!
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 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!
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 just want to say, that Bernie's coaching videos are excellent. He breaks everything down into digestible segments that are visually easy to follow, without dumbing down the instruction. I would jump (no pun intended) at the chance to clinic with Bernie. Thanks for these videos.
"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."
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!!
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.
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!
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!!!!!
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!
