Published on March 30, 2012 with No Comments

National Show Hunter Hall of Famer Bernie Traurig was at Knightsbridge Farm in Middletown last Saturday and Sunday, where the renowned trainer conducted a riding clinic for local equestrians. A 2009 inductee to the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame, Traurig has competed in the upper levels of national and international competition in three disciplines: jumpers, three-day eventing, and dressage. As a junior rider, Traurig won both the AHSA (NOW USEF) Medal Finals and the ASPCA Medal Finals in 1961. His most famous mounts have been show hunters named Gozzi, Riot Free, Mink’n Pearls, Royal Blue, and Circuit Breaker, and his show jumping partners were Jet Run, Edenvale, Corsair, and The Cardinal. He won over 60 Grand Prix show jumping events and has represented the USET several times including the 1992 World Championships in Dublin. He has competed in eight World Cup Finals and has won the U.S. League four times.

He is now based in California and uses his time to inform people through his website, equestrian, and teaching clinics.
