I have no idea why this thread got started, but I am thankful for it. It has provided me with advertisement and exposure, though some negative some positive ad well, and with every negative strikes curiosity, and the Curious will come out to a clinic or contact me for a lesson to see exactly what it is I do, so again, thank you!

    Criticism in itself does not bother me. Surely not everyone has the same taste in music or movies or anything else, and you can find forums all over the internet. Just because a small group or even a large group says a certain rock band has no talent or a movie is terrible does not make it true, it only makes it true to that particular group.

    In reading some of these post, I can 100% guarantee that anyone who claims they have worked with me and did not get positive results is an absolute liar. The closest I've ever come to a dissatisfied client recently, was a lady in NJ who pissed off her dressage trainer who also kept many clients horses on her facility. This lady rode her poor mare front to back, and so the horse was not forward and learn to suck back. This mare developed a real ring problem and this lady would actually beat this horse with a crop hundreds of times in a row to try to get any response.
    What I had her do, was first I rode the mare. I did not touch her mouth at all. Once I asked for trot and I felt her lock up, I backed off, and dismounted. Some trainers might have dug a spur or use the whip, but that is not my style. Instead I went back to basics and got the mare listening to me from the ground walking, troting, by voice command right by my shoulder. Then I asked this lady to get on while I stayed right next to her doing the same thing. All this lady had to do was sit there. Once the mare was troting and walking, and the transitions were smooth I then detached the lead rope and she was able to ride around her arena and she was very happy with the result.
    The dissatisfaction came when she asked me to keep coming out but wanted me to do it for practically nothing. So, she had the idea to take me on as the new head trainer of her facility and hope I could fill the stalls. She asked for my proposal which I provided, but what she didn't tell me was that she was considering another trainer and she actually showed that trainer my proposal! Horse people are the strangest I have ever met and this one was really weird! I have no idea what she was trying to do or why she did what she did but that led to a negative angry response from me and that is closest I've ever come to dissatisfaction.

    I have always been 100% honest about my abilities I've never lied I've never let anyone on I will tell you what I can do and what I cannot do. One thing I want to clear up, and I SOOO dont blame anyone for becoming skeptical when they hear the term "Grand Prix rider", and expect to see some scores or some competition history. I need to change that on my website, and stop saying that. This is my fault, I do not want to lead anyone on, I do not compete at that level! I went to a schooling show and that is the most I have done at Grand Prix. However, I am certainly trained to that level and also self-taught trained to airs above ground. I have trained in ALL High School movements, including Spanish walk and Spanish trot.
    Also, to clear up, I NEVER EVER call myself a master of dressage, other people call me that! I am not arrogant I am NOT self deluded and I am NOT a pompous in any way. I am, very confident in my abilities and what I can produce. We might disagree on certain aspects of training but that does not make me right and you wrong or vice versa.

    It is 9pm here on the East Coast. I will be happy to answer any question for the next 30 minutes. Questions about my training my background my credentials Exedra that's perfectly OK, but I am not here to argue I don't like going online I hate the internet and I hate computers. So, please, let's keep this questions and answers I will not argue with anyone I want to make that very clear. Lets keep this adult.
    I am ready for the first question....
    According to this post, he seemed quite sure that he would "soak up" some exposure!

    Exposure?
    Oh, yes! I think he has been exposed beyond his wildest dreams..

    I'm the Katy that posted on his facebook asking him for an explanation as to why he lied about the Dressage Today article. He has refused to answer my question and actually deleted it a few minutes ago. He's also blocked me from posting on his page...this is a tremendous loss for me, let me assure you.

    Just for clarification, I am not the Katie that he is going to sue and sever. I hope she is anxiously awaiting by her mailbox, wherever she may be.

    Can a FB user delete a post that is not a reply to a post they made? For example, if chicagojumper went back and made a separate comment with the DT link, could Peronace delete it?

    The thread is the gift that keeps on giving.

    Also, to the person who posted the video of the video, there are ways to download the video file in your browser so you can re-upload the original video. I really hope you can so that we can enjoy a more detailed video of the master at work. Though Youtube may put an age restriction on a video that vulgar.

    From NP Facebook page:

    " Aviator" cousin of the great stallion Contango.

    Who refers to a horse as a "cousin" of .... Horses aren't even considered "siblings" based on sire alone, they have to be full sibs...

    The ignorance and stupidity is deafening.
    From now on, ponyfixer, i'll include foot note references.

    Update from Facebook:

    Nick Peronace Dressage Dressage Today is definitely going to published an article that I am currently working on about training the non warmblood. It is going to be in the Aug issue 2014. I have personally been in touch with the editor and if u care to share this message with her by either taking a pic of the screen or by link, please do. Same with my publisher. Maybe the mis understanding is coming within the wording that everyone is using?
    I want to be crystal clear here so don't misunderstand this time: I am currently working on writing an article to submit to dressage today upon their request. If the editor for whatever reason can't remember speaking with me or can I use this or something strange like that please provide me a phone number so I can call her. I even have screen pics of our conversation verifying that they would like an article written!

    As for the book, I bet Richared who runs the company forgets about me also we haven't spoken in months! How that conversation was like this. We met up at a show, we talked about myself writing a book about training a non warm blood. Rich asked if I generate enough interest and I told him I could based on all the clinics I'm giving. He asked me to start writing a manuscript and when it is finished to contact him. So, if u people somehow misunderstood that I have already submitted work to either dressage today, or my publisher then you are mistaken.
    I hope that clears it up, and if any of them deny that they even know me please provide me the contact information because that's just the most bizarre thing I've ever heard. I have Richard cell phone so don't worry about that, but if the magazine forgets about talking to me that is something I need to touch base with them on.

    Other thing here. Maybe its my fault. Maybe I should never have said anything until a month before something is published. I had no idea there would be so much jealousy over someone as small and insignificant as myself! Im not some major competitor, I really don't see what all the fuss is about in everyone wanting to point the finger right away and cry out scam, especially when I keep getting these public rude post instead of private professional messages.

    This whole experience has been so surreal! I had absolutely no idea there was such a fuss about me until someone showed me the link to the Chronicle. Why? What is wrong with everyone? Why not just PM me with questions? Why do everything in public and no one even contacted me?
    Like I said, Im glad I have a lot of your real names because a lot of you are incredibly unprofessional, and quite frankly should be ashamed of yourselves!

    Where's the maturity level aren't we all adults or are you a bunch of children?

    Im sorry but I am simply just a guy trying to teach and give lessons . I'm doing something beautiful. Dressage is my art and my passion. I am going to have a really hard time if I ever meet any of you, because of how some of you have been acting lately. Evil with a capital E.

    What happened to professional courtesy? What happened to manners or were you all raised by wolves?
    And then you get the handful of people who are actually sincere and wanting to see video. It makes me not only never want to share any video with any of you, but never talk to any of you or Bioforce from any of you are referring clients etc etc cetera you make me not want to share a professional courtesy at all. Why would I?

    And if I do not provide video the majority of you are going to go right back to your grade school bullying and spreading rumors and spreading your lies Exedra Exedra.

    Im totally disgusted!!

    It looks like I can't post in any way - on his wall, in reply to another user's post, etc. I may or may not have immediately tried to go back and put my question back up on a different part of his page.

    Looks like we need another volunteer to pester him. I'm still anxiously awaiting to see if he answers the question regarding his schedule for the Mestro Peronace World Passage Tour(tm) sponsored by Enterprise Steaks. I want to get my ticket before they sell out...

    Mr. Peronace posted a facebook picture of the servered Katie Amber and accused her of, well, posting lies and defaming his character. I no longer see her picture on his site.

    I could hardly believe my eyes when I logged on and discovered this thread resurrected..totally awesome!!!
    I can't help but suspect this guy (and his sidekick Kelly) is an elaborately staged hoax though. This guy just can't be for real.

    He is for real. He called my cell phone looking to book a clinic.

    I did publish a book (not about dressage but...) and I got some news for Mr. P. You aren't slotted for publishing until the *contract* is signed. A contract. It has performance schedules in it, deadlines, expectations for both parties, and a publication schedule. It's like a big wordy document that your attorney looks at and you sign. Sometimes you get a check too.

    Mr. P: Do you remember signing something like this? I didn't think so. What the guy at the show told you (if there really was a guy at the show, I'm kind of doubting that now too but anyway...) was really just a kind blowoff. Anybody can submit a manuscript to a publisher. Authors do it all the time and, sad for you, most of them get rejected

    Talking to a guy at a horse show about a book that you haven't even written yet does not get you a publication date.

    The end.

    And now again:
    Nick Peronace Dressage Mind you something else it was brought to my attention. Why do you people care if I applied for a position at Van Olst or any other farm? Why would you go an email and phone call and everything else and hope to catch some scam? I am completely baffled by this whole ordeal its so weird!! Am I really that important to all of you? If Im not, then don't make me out to be so important. But just this once, and only because I saw an email from them saying that they've never heard of me, I am actually going to publish a screenshot of the email that they sent me denying me the position. For the life of me I don't understand why you lose sleep over such silliness but if it makes you all feel better I will show you the freaking email.

    Really, this is so weird!!

    Surprising that he doesn't have contact info for the magazine that is going to publish his article..

    Exedra? Really?

    I don't see authorship in Mr. Peronace's future.

    I don't doubt however, that Mr. Peronace would have the gall to apply for a position at a top barn and surely would not be surprised if he has an email rejection from a top barn, if he tried to sell them his services.

    Oh hell, I didn't intend to join, but having seen the deleted post that would explain poor Katie, I felt like I had to.

    So to explain this mysterious Katie thing... this morning he had posted to his facebook a screenshot of some girl named "Katie Marie"s facebook page with an epic rant about how she was the one contacting his supporters and e-mailing lies to barns hosting his clinics. I wish I had a screenshot of the rant. It was pure epicness. He referenced the photos of her in the screenshot as "The face of evil!"

    Peace out, I think I'll go back to lurking
