    OH DEAR GOD NO.

    Where's my brain bleach? I have to excise that visual immediately.
    According to the Mayan calendar, the world will not end this week. Please plan your life accordingly.

    I believe that the "Katie" Nick is threatening to sue has posted on his facebook page with regard to the non-article in Dressage Today.

    There once was a man named Peronace
    Who humped his horse into a dance
    He called it "piaffe" which made people laugh
    Since it looked more like horsey romance.

    Ok, ok, this did it.

    I'd been reading but trying to sit on my hands. This however was more than I could handle.

    Seriously though, how can one be so delusional?!

    The video reminded me of when I teach the wee kids... one of the 5 year olds will sometimes do this little scoot/hop in the saddle to try and will the horse to move...
    We couldn't all be cowboys, so some of us are clowns.

    I have one of those too. Maybe I shouldn't have told her not to do that...she might have gotten my ancient lesson horse to piaffe! Who knew?

    That must be one of his super-special methods used only for teaching the non-warmblood...

    Dies anyone else find it odd that "Kelly" refers to him by only his last name? If I have a trainer I like and respect, I'm going to refer to them in public as "Mr. Trainer" or "Ms Trainer," not just, "You just don't understand Trainer's method, you uneducated slob..." Most riders refer to their trainers as "Mr." or "Ms." or by their first name. That struck me as odd...

    So, note to "Kelly:" if you're going to play the houseguest, at least do a better job of it...

    Usually accompanied with a frustrated squeal, "Why won't he just GOOOOOOOOO?!?!"

    I was reminded of the same thing when I watched his video.

    Yes. It takes half the time to train a Non-Warmblood than it does a Warmblood [ducking and running]

    I'd LOVE to attend one of his clinics, but someone would have to cover the cost of my airfare. Would gladly audit and report back with videos.

    That might get Mr. Peronace to post a video.

    A Holiday Ode To The Maestro

    Twas a week after Christmas and all through the 'net
    Was talk of a trainer, as bad as they get
    His video horrid, that poor Peronace
    His art not good, he's no Liberace
    But his mouth was big, his words all lies
    Of greatness, of skill, all stumbling tries
    Because the one thing this schlep didn't know
    Is how far horsewomen are willing to go
    They don't like liars who make false claims
    They'll check out the facts, these curious dames
    So I'll tell you Nick just give up the fight
    You reek of fraud, you're just not quite right
    Might I suggest you go back to school
    So you no longer write like some blubbering fool
    And take a trip to a trainer near you
    They just might teach you a thing or two
    And remember always when you tug at that bit
    That's a thing you do when you ride like chit.

    If it weren't so cold where you are, we warmbloods would come over and piaffe around your house. (Remember: Don't eat yellow snow!)

    I think this requires a bad photoshop of Richard Simmons on Valegro as the album cover.
