Legendary Bernie Traurig Returns to Chestnut Hill

Cited by Victor Hugo-Vidal as “one of Littauer’s last well-known pupils,” Bernie Traurig returned to Chestnut Hill for a two-day clinic. Traurig – the only rider to have competed on all three United States Equestrian Team squads – challenged the small groups of riders to expand the limits of their knowledge and ability through work over a variety of flat and jumping exercises. Traurig continually sought to provide riders a “visual” of what he wanted done by offering ground as well as mounted demonstrations. His instruction was tough, technical and exacting as well as fun and encouraging.
