Equitation - An American Tradition of Excellence
Bernie Traurig

According to Bertalan de Nemethy, “nothing of any substance can be built on a flimsy foundation, and the horse and the rider who don’t know what they are doing will always fall far short of realizing their full potential.” It is with this in mind that we share this topic with you, for the fundamental principles of equitation begin with mastering the basics of classical American Forward Riding. This mastery takes time, determination and dedication but yields a riding style that is not only beautiful to watch, but effective in practice. Let's analyze some of our most recent Champions, Hunter Holloway, TJ O’Mara, McKayla Langmeier, Victoria Colvin and Zazou Hoffman, as they answer the weighty questions posed by an Equitation Finals course with a sophistication that will, no doubt, serve them well wherever their riding careers take them.
