    I wandered over here from hunter land, and I must say, thank you all for making my afternoon go a little faster. Y'all are awesome!

    I think someone needs to post the pick with the chains on his actual Facebook...since he does not seem to know how to delete those comments...

    Well Blume Farm, that's what happens when you buy your way to the top, Geez. I to have a fancy horse on the cheap. I bought her Elite dam at a dispersal auction and bought the breeding from the stallion service auction and got really lucky as she took on the first try and had a very routine pregnancy. I was very blessed to have a wonderful foal who aside from being Grey is as I "ordered" alas I too have bought my way to the winner's circle, (well I would if I actually won anything ;-) )

    I am always amazed at the assumption of others. Of course your hard work and dedication couldn't have gotten you there! You have a lovely mare, but I am sure you don't need little ole me to tell you that.

    Isabell Werth and Satchmo - at home, in a halter (and bareback - that is possible when you have a steady leg and a good seat), doing the GP moves. No yanking on the halter, no monkey humping - THIS is what a talented and gifted rider looks like. Ms. Werth put in the WORK needed to get to this level.
    Pure. CLASS.

    I couldn't find the form on the DAD website, but you can sponsor a breed class for just $500.

    or even breeder for that matter.

    Secondly, I take it as a HUGE compliment that he feels a mare I bred, raised, and trained with the help of my trainer was one that I went overseas and bought with a lot of $$. I did go overseas and buy her mother for $10K many, many years ago and was able to do that purchase because I had saved exactly $10k to purchase my dream horse. My father paid for my birthday trip overseas to go horse shopping and paid for her airfare to the US, which was MUCH cheaper in those days. I was lucky in getting a massive break on quarantine costs as I was a vet student at the time and worked at the quarantine facility. I bred my mare in Germany before import and that resulting foal is Roseblume, my riding mare.

    Thirdly, believe me I have heard from my trainer more times than I would like to recount "HEELS DOWN" and "LET GO". I am sure my mare feels that way as well In that picture I am starting a medium canter which I had been getting 6s on and we were certainly capable of higher scores. However, I always felt like I was flying but the video proved the judges right in "could be more" "needs more" "conservative". In my head though I always felt like the kid in the black stallion movie galloping on the beach!! In this picture I said to myself "go for it"!!!! And I did, then said "holy shit" and hung on for dear life. Either way I love the picture as it shows progress for my lovely mare and I.

    In an odd way I am flattered that he stole my picture. Is that weird or what?? In no way do I want to be associated with this man, but it is so funny to me that he stole my picture.

    Now off to go ride my high dollar mare. I will not tell her anyone said that about her as she has a big enough ego as it is
    You are awesome and I want to be your new best friend.

    love it, love the photo, love the Holy Shit.

    rock on, Blume.

    I pretty much want to hang out with everyone who did some incredible research and Photoshopped Richard Simmons onto horseback. You ladies (and one gentleman!) are amazing!

    He was banned from several, but if I'm the admin with the tagged no-advertising policy at the top of the page he was removed for violating the no-advertising policy and banned for being abusive to members who
    (politely) disagreed with his pro-rollkur stance. His abusive personal attacks and threats toward me came after his banning, and I reported him to facebook. I believe I am part of the reason his facebook page now has the number 5 in the url.

If he were not so quick to be abusive to others and not a flat out liar with the claims which have been disproved on this thread I wouldn't much care what he did, and be willing to discuss how one improves the seat with misguided individuals who think he's great. However, I do have a big issue with his abuse and attacks on strangers on the web. I would not let someone with a temper like that near my horses.
    My horse is a dressage diva so I don't have to be.

    No worries! Cat dressage is no flash in the pan. We'll be here when you're ready.

    The owner of the friesian claims it is wearing bell boots. Not going to link her page as she is really a victim of him as well.

    Perhaps gone from Facebook, but Reddfox got a screen cap of it along with Nick's critique. See post #898

    Nick Peronace The things that they are saying are absolutely falsifications and half truths. If anyone has any questions you can always contact me here on facebook in a PM,, and I will be happy to answer.
    Anyone who has ever worked with me has gotten positive results, and the critics who choose to bash my reputation have never worked with me! In fact I have said over and over again that I will work with anyone with any horse anywhere.

    I also want it noted that I'm currently suing this publication for the lies and twisted half truths to meet their own agenda. I have sent numerous communications to the editors in charge asking them to delete this thread and Link, and as a result some of my students and future clinics have chosen to believe the slander and I have suffered financially!!

    No, they're much heavier. It's more like a clonk, clonk, clonk
