Bernie Traurig Clinics

Bernie Traurig is world renowned for both his riding talent and coaching skills and is recognized as a legend in the sport.   As a rider, he reached the top of the sport in all three of the International Equestrian Olympic disciplines: Showjumping, Dressage, and Eventing.

As a showjumper, he represented the United States Equestrian Team at home and abroad on numerous occasions.   Bernie has won over 60 Showjumping Grand Prixs, competed in 8 World Cup Finals, won the United States League 4 times, and represented the United States in the 1982 World Championships in Dublin, Ireland.

As a dressage rider, he was the winner of 15 Grand Prixs and Grand Prix Special Classes, was short listed for the 1986 World Championship Trials & 1988 Olympic Games in Dressage, and won the High Point Dressage Award in 1988 at the Olympic selection trials.

In 2009, he was inducted into the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame. He also served as the West Coast’s associate Chef d’Equip to the former Chef d’Equip of the United States Olympic Equestrian Team. Because of his wealth of knowledge amassed over 50 years of training and riding with thousands of horses, Bernie is one of the most sought after clinicians in the United States today and is the founder of one of the top educational equestrian websites – equestriancoach.com.
