    HTG, I swear I didn't think COTHy poetry could top pAin't_Misbehavin's rooster poem. I was wrong and ^^^ is the definition of EPIC. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!

    And for reference, here's the ode to the roo from Racetrack Reject's sig line:
    Rhode Islands are red;
    North Hollands are blue.
    Sorry my thoroughbreds
    Stomped on your roo.
    Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

    Uh oh, knight's mom is going to get "servered" by Nick. Which is apparently what he was doing to his appy in that video.

    It would be so worth it! And he could use that $ since it costs about that to "serve" someone with a lawsuit. "Servering" is more expensive, I think.

    Ironically enough, when in court and you are "severed" it means you are removed from a case.

    Yes but Nick wasn't talking about severance, was he? LOL. That would mean Katie would escape his lawsuit. Or clinic. Now I forget how he spelled it. Was it "severed" or "severded" or what? It wasn't severed, was it? Spell check is getting me now. Time for wine.

    Katie can only be so lucky to be severed from his clinic....

    OK maybe a full-blooded Arab can eat our lunches, but we're part Arabian, and all full-blooded Arabs we've met and boarded with like us. But we'd be so scared to be ridden by Nick. Of course, we can buck pretty well.

    Can anyone direct me to the NJ clinic link? This might be worth braving the elements AND the price of admission
    When someone shows you who they are, BELIEVE THEM.

    He wrote "servered". Remember being served gets you into a court case, being severed gets you out. Writing 'servered' means you aren't writing the great American novel anytime soon.

    Just follow the crowds. And hide your camera. 50$ to the first video from Nick's clinic.

    So a recap of this thread.

    We have Mr. Peronace, self described here as per his website:

    Nick Peronace is Grand Prix Dressage Trainer specializing in "Non-Warmbloods" and young horses.
    He claims a number of other things at his website and through his facebook page.

    • He is located at {address redacted to protect the stable owner}
    • He has a book that will be published by xenophon press
    • He has an upcoming article in Dressage Today
    • He has trained over 10 horses to grand prix level including his own "chevy", each one taking approximately two years or so
    • He has recently been considered for a high profile training position in Europe



    Mr. Peronace uses the above listed credentials to cold call barns across the united states to try to book clinics.



    Upon further investigation, we understand that
    • The barn at the address he lists has no idea who he is. He or his defender "kelly" then states he doesn't work there but has ring permissions for ship-in lessons. This barn then corrects this claim, he does not have ring permission and does not teach ship-in lessons at this location.
    • He is not and has never been considered for publishing by xenophon.
    • He is not and has never been considered for publishing by Dressage Today.
    • He is not a grand prix rider or trainer. His training experience consists of "3 years on and off as a working student under a dressage trainer" whom he stopped working with at the tender age of 17. He continued to self-train until the age of 21 where he admitted he "got out of horses" until now (over a decade later)
    • He has never shown any horse at any recognized show, ever, at any level.
    • He was not ever considered for any training position in Europe at the barn he claims to have been. They have never heard of him.



    We do not have many pictures of Mr. Peronace "training horses" besides this singular video.

    [edit]




    Did i miss anything?

    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.
    KM--I bow to your poetic genius. You win!

    Now, can we get a little horsey stick art to make this really, truly, COTHily complete? Please!

    He was there in December, apparently, since the owner had great things to say about his lessons.

    32,596 views and counting. Mr. Peronace should be very pleased with the publicity.
